Breaking News: Federal Judge Halts Overtime Rule

Breaking News as a Federal Judge Halts the Overtime Rule. Our Legal Affairs Chairperson, Louis Wilson has provided us with a statement from his office, FordHarrison on the matter:

"Employers do not have to make changes to comply with the Department of Labor’s (DOL’s) new overtime regulations by the December 1, 2016 deadline. In a surprising decision, a federal District Court in Texas issued an injunction halting the implementation of the new overtime rules nationwide. If the injunction remains intact when President-elect Trump takes office, it may allow the new administration additional avenues in which to seek to modify, amend or repeal the DOL’s overtime rule, even if further judicial action is not taken to ultimately overturn the regulations."
