Great News For Businesses: Federal Judge Strikes Down Department Of Labor Overtime Rule!

A Federal Judge invalidated the $47,476 salary threshold that the U.S. DOL attempted to implement last year. A Texas Judge who last year temporarily enjoined the D.O.L. from implementing its highly controversial overtime regulations in December, as planned, has issued a final decision declaring them invalid and unenforceable. District Court Judge Amos L. Mazzant, III ruled that the Obama D.O.L. exceeded its authority when it more than doubled the minimum salary level for white collar overtime exemptions. The ruling impacts millions of employees and their employers.

Latest Update on Court Proceedings over DOL's Overtime Salary Regulations

Thousands of employers affected by the US Department of Labor's Minimum Salary Rule for Overtime Pay Exemptions have anxiously awaited the outcome of litigation that blocks the rule from going into effect as intended, on December 1, 2016.

Employers Receive an 11th Hour Reprieve on DOL Minimum Salary Rule - Federal Judge Blocks Overtime Rule From Going Into Effect as Planned, On December 1st.

A federal judge in Sherman, Texas has issued a preliminary injunction which operates nation-wide to bar the Department of Labor's minimum salary rule for certain white collar exemptions from going into effect. Employers have been bracing for drastic changes to their pay practices and exempt/non-exempt job classifications due to a DOL regulation finalized this summer and set to take effect December 1, 2016. This rule more than doubled the minimum salary required to claim certain exemptions from overtime pay. The court's decision to block the rule, issued on November 22nd, came not a moment too soon for thousands of employers facing tough decisions before the rule was to take effect next Thursday.
