SBA announces Regional Roundtables on DOL’s Overtime Rule
Posted March 19, 2019 by Chandler Schuette

The Small Business Administration (SBA) announced several regional roundtables to discuss the Department of Labor’s (DOL) proposed Overtime Rule, which would increase the minimum salary for the “white collar” overtime exemption from $23,660 annually to $35,308 annually.  In effect, under the proposal, workers earning under $35,308 annually would be eligible for overtime pay if they work more than 40 hours per week. 

The SBA Roundtables will be an opportunity for the SBA to hear directly from credit unions about the potential impact of the proposed rule.  Comments on the rule are due 60 days after its publication in the Federal Register (TBD).

Credit unions interested in participating in these roundtables must RSVP to
