The Department of Labor’s (DOL) controversial overtime rule is officially on hold. But other than that, not much else is certain with the rule — and that’s a problem for employers.
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.
