What is Senate Bill S. 803?
This bill would allow workers in the private sector to receive time off with pay instead of standard overtime, time-and-a-half pay. Sponsored by a trio of GOP senators, the White House, labor unions, and the National Partnership for Women & Families have opposed the bill.
The bill impacts private sector employees.
Family Friendly and Workplace Flexibility Act of 2015
A bill to amend the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 to provide employees in the private sector with an opportunity for compensatory time off, similar to the opportunity offered to Federal employees, and a flexible credit hour program to help balance the demands of work and family, and for other purposes.
If this provides employer latitude from work rules the Govt really should never have subsumed to itself, then the employer and employee are winners, not to mention the taxpayers who would see less costs of regulation, enforcement and litigation.
