An Update on the Overtime Rule


The fate of the overtime rule has had employers in suspense for the past four months, but now, according to one member of President Trump’s transition team, a final resolution isn’t far off.

Daylight Savings Time | Notice an Extra Hour on Your Employees’ Time Cards?


Over the weekend, Daylight Saving Time officially began on Sunday, March 12th, at 2:00 AM.

Senate Votes to Eliminate Rule Requiring Federal Contractors to Disclose Safety Violations


On Monday, March 6th, the Senate voted to eliminate a safety rule issued by the U.S. Department of Labor in August. The rule, developed under the Obama administration, would require federal contractors to disclose and correct serious safety violations made over the previous three years when bidding for new contracts. During the vote, Republicans scored a narrow victory against Democrats voting 49-48 to eliminate the regulation. While Republicans and business groups are praising the outcome, Democrats point out the safety issues that led to the regulation being formed in the first place.  A report issued by Senate Democrats in 2013 found that almost 30 percent of the top violators of federal wage and safety laws from 2007 to
