In response to court challenges to the federal overtime rule that was scheduled to go into effect on December 1, 2016, the Department of Labor (DoL) has decided not to advocate for the minimum weekly salary ($913) required by the final rule. Instead, the DoL plans to issue a Request for Information (RFI) to aid in formulating a proposal to revise the current overtime regulations contained in CFR Part 541. In response to President Trump's Executive Order 13777, entitled "Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda," the RFI is directed at reducing regulatory burden.
