Proposed USDOL Overtime Rule Changes will Harm MANY Chamber Members
The clock is ticking and the Midstate Chamber has prepared a position paper for the US Department of Labor to slow down the proposed changes to overtime rules. These changes will cause MANY of your supervisors and managers to no longer be exempt from overtime laws. While this is sold as a way to help the middle class, it will in fact run businesses out of business and definitely harm our Chamber members.
On behalf of the entire Board and Membership, I'd like to thank the ad hoc committee members Yvonne deAngeli-Fontanez of the Four Points by Sheraton, Rich Pendred of A & A Office Systems, Frank Ridley of F.W.R. Consulting, Linda Krampitz of Gaylord Specialty Healthcare and Ralph Mesite of the Villa Capri as well as Pam Fields of the ARC of Meriden & Wallingford (and Government and Business Development Committee chairperson) and Sloane Peterson-Vath of Hunter's Ambulance Service (and Chair of our H.R. Round Table) their contributions to help the Chamber work on this important issue.
We promise to keep you posted as the process unfolds.
