New Wage and Hour Regulations Proposed by Department of Labor

Very quietly and with zero fanfare, the Department of Labor has published proposed new regulation for the Fair Labor Standards Act. The DOL's stated intent to amend regulations that have "become out of date because of subsequent legislation or court decisions." The biggest changes deal with compensatory time, tip pooling, and overtime pay for fluctuating workweeks. There will be much more on these topics if these proposals are formally adopted into the FLSA's regulations.
