8. U.S. DOL Agenda: The Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division is expected to pursue an active regulatory agenda with the anticipated release of final regulations for the expanded military family leave under the Federal Family and Medical Leave Act, and a final rule to substantially restrict current minimum wage and overtime exemptions for companionship services and live-in domestics. The DOL may also revive the rule process for “Right to Know” regulations which could require employers to provide written notification of a worker’s status and to deliver required wage statements. The agency is also expected to continue its assertive wage and hour enforcement program, especially in the hospitality industry and others where many employees have tips as part of their compensation.
