Judge Halts Implementation of New Overtime Rule

  • A federal court judge issued a preliminary injunction, halting the implementation of the Department of Laborís (DOL) new overtime rule that was set to take effect on Dec. 1.
  • The ruling is the result of two lawsuits, one brought by a coalition of 21 states and the other by the U.S Chamber of Commerce and several other chambers and business organizations. The suits were combined and heard in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.
  • The preliminary injunction temporarily suspends the new overtime rule until the court can rule on the merits of the case. Opponents of the new overtime rule view the injunction as a sign that the lawsuit to permanently block the new overtime rule has a substantial likelihood of succeeding. DOL is expected to challenge the decision.
