Coalition of over 600 groups says Labor Dept. Persuader Rule Ignores Public Disagreement
Washington, D.C. –This Wednesday, April 27 the House Education and Workforce Committee has scheduled a hearing on the Department of Labor “Persuader” Rule. In advance of the hearing, The Coalition for a Democratic Workplace (CDW) released the following statement from CDW Chair Kristen Swearingen:
“The DOL has not only ignored thousands of public comments submitted when imposing the “persuader” regulation, but also disregarded the clear requirements Congress imposed on rulemaking procedures. As a result, the DOL has offered a flawed regulation that will bring harm to millions of small and mid-sized American businesses.”
“Kudos to the House Education and Workforce Committee for recognizing this blatant disregard for public comments and hosting this hearing today.”
