Do the Democrats have a backup plan for the DOL’s new overtime rule if it dies in court or at the hands of the Trump administration? You betcha.
A Texas federal court judge has issued a preliminary injunction, delaying the DOL’s changes to the FLSA overtime exemption rule. And while many may welcome the news, the reality is it creates a huge mess for employers.
If the DOL’s changes to the overtime rule end up getting upheld after the recent injunction, they could be enacted quickly. As a result, you need to make sure you’ve dotted your “i’s” and crossed your “t’s” in preparation for the rule.
Employers hoping for an injunction that would delay the implementation of the DOL’s new overtime exemption rule may get their wish next week.
