Labor Dept. seeks to rethink overtime rule

The Department of Labor today filed its reply brief in the lawsuit challenging the Obama Administration’s overtime rule.

In the brief, the DOL said it has decided not to advocate at this time for the specific salary level of $913 per week set in the final rule. The agency also stated it “intends to undertake further rulemaking to determine what the salary level should be.”

Angelo Amador, executive director of our Restaurant Law Center, said the National Restaurant Association was pleased with the DOL’s decision to begin rethinking the overtime rule and its effect on business.

"It's great to see a Department of Labor finally taking the time to fully evaluate the impact its regulations will have on businesses,” he said. “Secretary Acosta has once again proven he is a thoughtful leader who will work in the best interest of the American worker.”

The NRA submitted an amicus brief in this case and our regulatory comments were cited several times in the DOL’s reply brief.
