Rob Boonin Talks to SHRM About Anticipated Proposed Overtime Rule

Press Mentions


In anticipation of the U.S. Department of Labor's (DOL's) proposed changes to the overtime rule, Rob Boonin was quoted in a feature by the Society for Human Resource Management.

While it’s unclear how high the DOL will decide to raise the salary level threshold for white collar employees, many anticipate the DOL to expand the duties tests, making it more difficult for employers to classify certain employees as exempt without modifying their job functions. Boonin speculates that any significant change to these tests would be subject to legal challenges based on the "major questions" doctrine, which bars regulatory changes of vast economic and political significance when not clearly authorized by Congress.
