Legislative Alert

Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor has proposed a rule change on the way you pay salary for supervisors, managers, professional and contract employees. More than double the minimum salary allowed and changing classification of many. This proposal would hurt all our members but would be especially hard on multi-location owners who depend on managers and supervisors. Click here to read our response and written comments.
