Court Temporarily Blocks Overtime Rule

RotenbergMeril

On November 22, 2016, U.S. District Court Judge Amos Mazzant granted an Emergency Motion for Preliminary Injunction and thereby enjoined the Department of Labor from implementing and enforcing the Overtime Final Rule on December 1, 2016.  The case was heard in the United States District Court, Eastern District of Texas, Sherman Division (State of Nevada ET AL v. United States Department of Labor ET AL No: 4:16-CV-00731). The rule updated the standard salary level and provided a method to keep the salary level current to better effectuate Congress’s intent to exempt bona fide white-collar workers from overtime protections.

 What you should know:

  • Employers (until further notice) do not need to comply with original December 1st effective date.
  • This injunction is temporary subject to the court’s review.
  • There is no way of knowing when the status of these regulations will change; we are monitoring the situation and will notify you as soon as updates become available

For more information on the Overtime Rule, please visit the Department Of Labor website.
