It appears the Trump administration is looking to get a Department of Labor (DOL) Secretary in place before deciding what to do with the DOL’s new overtime rule.
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.
