If your company is impacted by the changes in the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) Overtime rules and you are now confused due to the election results, the PIA HR Listserve Networking Groups has been atwitter since the results of the Presidential Election this past Tuesday and we would like to share the comments with you.
President-Elect Trump has made many references to reexamining and possibly eliminating many onerous rules and regulations and this has given some of our members hope that the December 1st implementation date for the new rules will be delayed or rescinded.
Some of our member companies have voiced the opinion that they should delay or even overturn decisions that they have already implemented. However, the prevailing opinion of the many HR managers throughout the country who commented on the topic, as well as the VP of HR for PIA, Adriane Harrison, is that you should apply any required changes by the December 1 deadline. President-Elect Trump does not take office until January 20th and even if he is inclined to make changes in the FLSA Overtime rule there is no indication at this point that he will make it his first or even one of the top priority of his administration.
The HR Listserve Networking Group is available to all members and is a valuable benefit of PGAMA membership. The subjects that are initiated, and the opinions rendered, vary and are offered from print colleagues from all over the country.
