Oregon Manufacturers May Be Eligible to Obtain Waivers From Complying With Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries ’s New Daily and Weekly Overtime Interpretation

The Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) recently made a surprising change in its interpretation of the daily and weekly overtime requirements for manufacturers.
