Legislative Update: Latest On OT Proposal

This is an update to an article on the topic of OT Proposal reported in a March edition of The Light Post. The DOL sent the rule to the White House Office of Management and Budget Aug. 12 for final review, according to Bloomberg Law, just five months after proposing the rule. The department received more than 116,000 comments on the proposed changes. Business groups generally support the proposed increase. The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) stated it supports the threshold.

If finalized, the new overtime rule would result in the reclassification of more than a million currently exempt workers as nonexempt and an increase in pay for others above the new threshold. The proposal does not call for automatic adjustments to the salary threshold, does not create different salary levels based on region of the country and does not make any changes to the duties tests.

KY SHRM Conference Highlights

Speaker: Eric Ellis | President and CEO, Integrity Development Corporation

Session Description: One of the major challenges organizations face is a lack of diversity in their leadership ranks. Research has identified implicit bias as an underlying culprit. There are many studies on how implicit bias impacts fairness and equity in the workplace. Unfortunately, there are few practical tools available to reduce the negative impact of bias on career success of diverse employees. This session will present a performance calibration tool that can positively impact equitable representation of diverse talent in leadership roles.

Kellie Watson | Chief Equity Officer, Louisville Metro Government

Tom Wiliams | Attorney, Stoll Keenon Ogden

Session Description: Every employer is seeking diversity, but few provide employees the tools for their employees to talk across the differences that exist. A workplace that builds “social muscle” through creating and deepening relationships across differences will grow and foster a strong culture. This session, from a nationally recognized organization working with Louisville leaders, including Lean into Louisville, LSHRM and Compassionate Louisville, focuses on fostering relationships of respect and empathy across differences. Hands-on examples of exercises that can be incorporated into employee leadership training will be provided, and tools will be shared on how Companies can create spaces of connection. Examples of what you’ll learn and practice include how to deepen conversations; story telling and story listening; and “putting difference on the table”.
