Department of Labor Overtime Rule Blocked

The Department of Labor Overtime Rule that would have required employers to pay overtime to most salaried workers who earn less than $47,476 annually, has been blocked.  Texas U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant issued a temporary injunction blocking the Department of Labor rule, which was scheduled to take effect December 1st.

Dozens of business groups, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and 21 state attorneys general, including Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, filed suit against the rules.  The litigation will likely continue beyond inauguration day. President-elect Trump is expected to either eliminate the new rule or make substantial revisions to ease the burden on businesses.
