ILMA Demands Delay in Overtime Increases

Today, ILMA joined the Partnership to Protect Workplace Opportunity (PPWO) in sending a letter to the Department of Labor urging them to delay until at least September 1, 2024, the first increase to the minimum salary threshold under the department’s new overtime final rule.

“DOL is expecting the regulated community to implement a 23% increase to the minimum salary threshold in only 60 days,” explained PPWO spokesperson Edwin Egee, vice president of government relations and workforce development with the National Retail Federation. “This includes small businesses, nonprofit organizations, higher education institutions, state and local governments, and public entities.

“PPWO and the 87 other employer organizations from all corners of the economy that have joined the letter are urging DOL to reconsider their timeline and delay implementation until at the very earliest September 1, 2024.

Worker applies lubricant to large bearing.

A delay would ensure the employer community can adjust to the new rule appropriately.”
