“WHD is pushing economically damaging regulations that will negatively impact the economy and small businesses. WHD rules are excessively burdensome, impose enormous costs on businesses and workers, and harm job creation and economic growth,” said Chairman Kiley. “Congress has made clear the importance of carefully considering small businesses’ needs in agency rulemaking, yet DOL continues to push federal legislation harmful to job creators.”
