The new overtime rule that was set to take effect on December 1, 2016 has been halted. A preliminary injunction was issued against the rule by a federal judge in Texas on November 22, 2016. While an appeal of the ruling is possible, for the time being the new overtime rule is on hold.
Our white paper “Overtime Rule Blocked by Federal Court” provides a brief description of what the overtime rule entails, federal court cases that led up to the preliminary injunction, and recommendations for employers given this new development.
We will continue to monitor this situation and keep you posted of new developments.
