In an effort to help its members adjust to recent Department of Labor-issued overtime regulations, the AMOA has joined with the Partnership to Protect Workplace Opportunity (PPWO). New regulations were passed in May and include a 100-percent increase to the minimum salary threshold for paying overtime to exempt employees.
The PPWO is made up of a diverse group of associations and businesses that employ millions across the country in an assortment of industries. The Partnership believes its members are best served by a system that promotes flexibility in structuring employee schedules and hours while simultaneously promoting career advancement opportunities for employees.
The Partnership recently sent a letter to leaders of the U.S. House Small Business Committee urging support for H.R. 4773, the Protecting Workplace Advancement and Opportunity Act, which would require the DOL to conduct a detailed economic analysis before making further changes to federal overtime requirements and would prohibit automatic increases.
