IPMA-HR works for its members in Washington, advocating for rules and policies that benefit public sector HR practioners.
When new policy issues arise, IPMA-HR staff and the membership determine the appropriate position for the association. Policy stances are published on our Web site and made available in our publications. Many positions are long-standing.

On September 3, the International Public Management Association for Human Resources (IPMA-HR) and the International Municipal Lawyers Association (IMLA) submitted a second round of comments on the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking issued on July 6, 2015 by the U.S. Department of Labor to amend the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) regulations implementing the exemption from minimum wage and overtime pay for executive, administrative, professional, outside sales, and computer employees.
Big changes to the nation's overtime law will greatly expand the number of "white-collar" workers who qualify for overtime pay. The proposed rule, issued by the Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor (DOL) is 295 pages in length, leaving many public sector managers wondering how it affects them.
