The U.S. Department of Labor recently released their final rule governing federal overtime standards. The new rule doubles the existing threshold, dramatically increasing labor costs in many convenience stores. Recently, several Senators and House Members introduced legislation, the Protecting Workplace Advancement and Opportunity Act, that would require DOL to go back to the drawing board with its overtime proposal. In particular, the legislation would require DOL to conduct a comprehensive economic analysis of the impact of mandatory overtime expansion on small businesses before a final rule is issued.
