REP. GUTIÉRREZ ANNOUNCES NEW OVERTIME RULES WILL APPLY IN WASHINGTON AND CHICAGO OFFICES

Jul 27, 2015 Press Release

Washington, DC – Today, Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez (D-IL) announced that proposed Obama overtime regulations would apply to his congressional employees in Washington and Chicago regardless of whether the U.S. Congress moves to adopt them when final. The rules, announced this summer and still in the comment period until September, would raise the cap from $23,660 per year to $50,440 per year at which employees could earn time-and-a-half for overtime. Congress generally does not abide by private sector or public sector standards, setting its own rules on employee compensation. For example, Congress still abides by the 1996 standard of $13,000 per year as the threshold to trigger overtime for salaried employees.
