TechServe Alliance Responds to DOL Request for Information on Revised Overtime Regulations

TechServe Alliance, on behalf of its member firms, responded to the Department of Labor’s (DOL) Request for Information (RFI) intended to facilitate future rulemaking to replace the Obama Administration’s overtime regulation.

The comments, filed on September 25, 2017, stake out TechServe’s long-held position that the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) does not give DOL legislative rulemaking authority to impose a salary requirement on computer professionals or narrow the scope of the exemption for those employees who satisfy the “duties” test. More than 160,000 comments were submitted in response to the RFI.
