U.S. Department of Labor Launches Additional New Tool for the Overtime Security Rule

September 8, 2004

WASHINGTON - In a continued outreach effort to ensure full employer compliance with the Department of Labor's new Overtime Security Rule, the Office of Compliance Assistance Policy has launched an additional Web tool, the FLSA Overtime Security Advisor (www.dol.gov/elaws/overtime.htm). The purpose of this new interactive tool is to help employers and workers get comprehensive and accurate information about the new rule, which took effect on August 23, 2004. It is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

"The Department of Labor's New Overtime Security Rule provides strengthened overtime protection for millions of American workers. In an effort to ensure that workers understand their rights and employers know their responsibilities, the Department has undertaken the most extensive outreach on any regulation in its history. This is one additional tool to assist workers and employers," said Al Robinson, Wage and Hour Division Acting Administrator.

Additional information about the Overtime Security Rule can also be found on the Department's Fairpay Web site (www.dol.gov/fairpay). This Web site includes a variety of tools or resources such as fact sheets and on-line training seminars with video and power point presentations.

The new online tool, part of the "Employment Laws Assistance for Workers and Small Businesses" program, is one of many online tools available on the Department's Compliance Assistance Web site (www.dol.gov/compliance). The tool helps workers and employers understand the new rules in a question-and-answer format. Employers can use the tool to ensure they are in compliance with the revised rule and are paying workers correctly. Workers can use it to help determine whether they are entitled to overtime pay.
