SBA APPLAUDS RELEASE OF U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR OVERTIME RULE THAT PROTECTS THE OVERTIME RIGHTS OF POLICE AND OTHER FIRST RESPONDERS
Regulations continue protections from the 2004 Overtime Rule that the SBA championed specific to police sergeants and extends overtime rights to one million additional workers.
New York – The Sergeants Benevolent Association, of the New York City Police Department whose 13,000 members make it the fifth largest police union in the country applauded the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) proposed regulations to expand overtime protections for American workers under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The proposed regulations increase the salary threshold below which workers must be paid overtime—regardless of their job duties—from $455 a week ($23,660 per year) to $679 per week ($35,308 per year). DOL proposes no changes to the duties test applicable to professional, executive and administrative employees paid above this threshold. Most importantly, the proposal makes no changes to the protections that current regulations issued in 2004 afford to police sergeants and other first responders.
“The proposed rule affirms our union’s steadfast commitment to protecting the overtime rights of SBA members and it proves that we have a Secretary of Labor who is equally committed to doing right by America’s working men and women,” said SBA President Ed Mullins.
The SBA actively engaged in the public listening sessions and Request for Information process that the Labor Department relied upon to inform this proposed rule. “Our union used every opportunity to impress upon DOL the importance of retaining the protections in the 2004 Overtime Rule and not altering the duties tests to deprive workers of hard-earned overtime,” Mullins explained.
“We now know that our concerns were heard,” he continued. “We also commend DOL for recognizing the need to develop a regular means to update the overtime threshold so that American workers do not have to wait fifteen years for the next increase,” Mullins added.
In 2012, the SBA secured $20 million for over 5,500 active and retired sergeants of the NYPD after eight years of litigation against the City of New York for wrongfully classifying certain NYPD sergeants as exempt from overtime. SBA president, Ed Mullins, was the lead plaintiff in this litigation, Mullins v. City of New York.
