Overtime on Hold… Again

On February 22nd a federal appeals court granted the Department of Labor another extension.  may-1stThe new date for the DOL to state its position will be May 1st.
The DOL requested additional time to “allow incoming leadership personnel adequate time to consider the issues.”

The Department of Labor cabinet position remains open until the Senate confirms the nominee.  Alexander Acosta has been nominated after Andrew Puzder withdrew his nomination.  A conformation hearing has not been set for Mr. Acosta.

Once upon a time there was a boring HR person sitting in a back office filling out paperwork spouting sections from the handbook. I’m not that HR person. Work is a scary and sometimes funny place with lots of lessons to learn along the way. People don’t follow the rules, it’s HR’s job to steer them in the right direction. Unfortunately there are no apples with spells to make the bad employees fall asleep until we can recruit new ones. My Name is Denise Benages and I have been in the Human Resource field for over 16 years. I am president of HR Midwest, Inc. I plan on telling the epic lore of the workplace and help with solutions.
