WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy will be hosting three roundtables to discuss the Department of Labor’s proposed Overtime Regulation under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

The proposal would be updating the 2004 rule and increase that salary threshold from $455 to $679 per week ($35,308 annually).

The SBA’s Office of Advocacy hopes to hear from small businesses about the impact of the rule.

The proposal is now open for public comment and will remain open for public comment for 60 days.
