Breaking News: Court Temporarily Blocks Overtime Rule


On Tuesday, November 22, 2016, a federal court judge issued a preliminary injunction to temporarily block the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) from implementing and enforcing its Final Overtime Rule nationally, pending further order by the court.

What does this mean for employers?

  • As a result of the ruling, employers currently do not need to comply by the original December 1 effective date.
  • The injunction is temporary pending further review by the court.
  • We have no way of knowing if or when the status of the regulations will change.
