Federal Judge Blocks Overtime Rule from Taking Effect Next Week

Posted on 11/23/2016

A federal judge in Texas yesterday blocked the Department of Labor's final rule doubling the salary level used to determine whether employees are classified as exempt from overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act. The rule -- which increases the salary level for exemptions from $23,660 to $47,476 -- was set to take effect next week, on Thursday, Dec. 1.

District Judge Amos Mazzant issued his ruling in a lawsuit brought by 21 states and several business groups. The injunction prevents the rule from taking effect nationwide pending the court's decision on the merits of the case against DoL.
