Urge Your Member of Congress to Take Action on Impending Overtime Labor Department Rule
Dear NAMA Members:
The election is over and Congress has returned to Washington, DC. One of the issues on the docket is a potential modification to the Department of Labor Overtime Rule.
NAMA is urging members to ask their elected officials in DC to support S. 3464, https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/senate-bill/3464 The Overtime Reform and Review Act, a Senate bill that would stretch out the timeline for implementing the rule over five years.
This legislation includes not only the five-year phase-in, but also a provision requiring an independent study of the rule after the first year of implementation. Should the rule be found to negatively impact American workers and the economy, nonprofit groups (including colleges and universities), state and local governments, and many Medicaid and Medicare-eligible facilities would be exempt from any further increases under the rule.
Time is of the essence on this issue. Please download the NAMA grassroots app and contact your elected official today. Passage of this bill could provide companies the ability to phase in this major change in employment law. You can contact your Members of Congress and send this message to them by using the NAMA Grassroots Mobile App.
