48 LC DBM I n f o r m a t i o n R e q u e s t # 4 3 3 I n f o r m a t i o n R e q u e s t # 4 0 8 I n f o r m a t i o n R e q u e s t # 4 5 8 The Department of Labor's prac- tice of using a three-part test – be- ing paid on a salary basis, earning a specified salary level, and satisfying a duties test – to identify workers who are not eligible for overtime pay, suffered a setback when a district court ruled the salary level part of the test was unlawful. In a court brief recently filed, lawyers for the DOL asked to reverse that ruling as the department plans to lower the salary level threshold, $47,000, set by the Obama administration. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration pro - posed a delay to the deadline to comply with the electronic reporting component of the Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses, to Dec. 1, 2017. The organization stated that this would allow them an opportunity to further review and consider questions of law and policy, and provide employers the same four- month window for submit - ting data that the original rule would have provided.
