Obama’s Proposed Overtime Rule is Overruled
In 2016, the Department of Labor issued a new overtime rule under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The new rule was scheduled to take effect on December 1, 2016; however, prior to the new rule taking effect a federal court in Texas issued a nationwide temporary injunction. On August 31, 2017, that federal court followed up its injunction with a ruling invalidating the new overtime rule permanently. What if any action the Department of Labor will take in light of this ruling is unclear.
