Act Now! Members Urged to Seek Extension for Overtime Proposal Comments

As part of the Partnership to Protect Workplace Opportunity, NJBankers, ABA and other trade associations representing employers have urged the Department of Labor to extend, by 60 days, the comment period on its controversial overtime proposal, which would more than double the salary level required for the exemption from overtime requirements from $455/week to $970/week. It is urgent, for our advocacy efforts, that members take action now. The changes, if adopted as proposed, will have a significant impact on the banking industry, particularly community banks. Comments on the proposal are due by September 4 so we urge members to take action in seeking more time, as the deadline does not provide enough time to assess fully the effect of the proposal on employers. Take action now. Read More
