NT Lakis attorneys have filed detailed written comments with the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) in response to that agency’s Request for Information (RFI) on appropriate revisions to its regulations implementing the minimum wage and overtime exemption for so-called “white-collar” employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

The RFI is the first step in a process that is expected ultimately to result in promulgation of new regulations designed to replace the controversial changes to the white collar regulations made by the Obama Administration.

Our comment letter responds specifically to a series of questions posed by DOL in its RFI. In sum, we argue against any drastic overhaul of revisions to the “white-collar” exemptions that were made by the Bush Administration in 2004, and suggest instead that any further changes to the regulations should mirror the framework established in the 2004 revisions.
