  • PCI Commends Congress Action to Delay DOL Overtime Rule
  • WASHINGTON — Nat Wienecke, senior vice president, federal government relations at the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) issued the following statement commending the House for passing legislation entitled “The Regulatory Relief for Small Businesses, Schools, and Nonprofits Act,” (H.R. 6094). This legislation would delay the Department of Labor’s overtime rule’s effective date by six months, from December 1, 2016 to June 1, 2017.

    “PCI commends the House for passing The Regulatory Relief for Small Businesses, Schools, and Nonprofits Act,” said Wienecke. “This important legislation would delay the Department of Labor’s rule on overtime regulations. Employers across the country are struggling to meet the deadline for complying with the Department of Labor’s changes to the overtime rules. A six month extension provides employers with additional time to determine out how best to comply with the new regulations.”
