The U.S. Department of Labor, U.S Equal Employment Opportunity commission (EEOC), and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), has formally released their agendas for Spring 2018.
Amongst topics discussed, there were a few key subjects slated to create ripples within the HR world.
DOL has announced it’s plans to propose a new overtime regulation in or around January 2019, as a replacement to the Obama administration’s proposition previously slated to be enacted in October 2018. The DOL also announced measures to recalculate and redefine terms for workers compensation in relation to FLSA and overtime hours. The debate regarding tip pools is also being brought back up in an effort to amend Obama era rules placed earlier.
Employers should expect to see more progressive changes in the coming months.
