Washington, D.C. (May 10, 2016) — Tammy McCutchen, a principal in Littler’s Washington, D.C. office and former administrator of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Wage and Hour Division, will testify before the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship during a hearing on the DOL's “white collar” exemption overtime regulations. The hearing will take place at 9:30 am EST on Wednesday, May 11, 2016 in the Russell Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C. and will also be aired on C-SPAN 3.
Drawing on her current practice counseling employers on overtime exemptions and other pay practices, as well as her experience overseeing the DOL’s 2004 revisions to the overtime regulations, McCutchen will discuss the impact the proposed regulations will have on small businesses, small nonprofit organizations and small government entities. Her testimony will focus in particular on the impact of raising the minimum salary threshold, automatic annual increases to the salary levels and potential changes to the duties test for exemption.
McCutchen will be joined by representatives from Jobs with Justice, Besh Restaurant Group, the Economic Policy Institute and Operation Smile. More information on the hearing is available here.
