Employment Law Updates

A federal judge in Texas yesterday issued a nationwide preliminary injunction preventing the U.S. Department of Labor’s new overtime rule from going into effect as scheduled on December 1.

This action leaves in place the current minimum salary level of $455 per week required for employees to be classified as exempt. The new rule would have raised that level to $913 per week. The injunction is only preliminary, but will remain in place until the court rules otherwise. It is also possible that the incoming presidential administration will take steps to reverse the new rule, so stay tuned.
