Obama Appointee Trumps Implementation of DOL's Salary Hike

Jones Walker • November 28, 2016
Since 2014, employers have been preparing for, and many have already communicated or implemented, classification and compensation changes to comply with the U.S. Department of Labor's revised regulations, which would double the minimum salary required for certain exempt employees effective December 1, 2016. For more information concerning the changes, see our May client alert on this topic. Yesterday, a federal judge in Texas issued a nationwide preliminary injunction blocking the DOL from implementing the minimum salary hike from $455 weekly ($23,660 annually) to $913 weekly ($47,476 annually). State of Nevada et al. v. U.S. Department of Labor et al., No. 4:16-cv-731 (E.D.Tex. November 22, 2016).

Employers are not yet required to pay overtime in accordance with the revised FLSA regs . . . but proceed with caution.

Ogletree Deakins • November 28, 2016
By now, employers know that on November 22, 2016, federal court Judge Amos Mazzant in Texas issued a preliminary injunction that has blocked – temporarily – the implementation of the revised white collar overtime regulations issued by the Department of Labor (DOL) earlier this year. Those regulations, which have been the focus of concern, controversy, and downright panic, were set to become effective on December 1, 2016.

FLSA Salary Changes Halted For Now

Fisher Phillips • November 28, 2016
Yesterday afternoon, Texas federal District Judge Amos Mazzant preliminarily enjoined the U.S. Labor Department from "implementing or enforcing" the salary-related changes in the federal Fair Labor Standards Act's "white collar" exemptions that were supposed to take effect on December 1. His decision was made in response to an emergency motion by the 21 states that had filed suit seeking to invalidate the Labor Department's actions.

A federal court has blocked the new overtime rule from the US Department of Labor (DOL).

Federal Court Stops December 1st Implementation of New Overtime Rules

FordHarrison LLP • November 23, 2016
Executive Summary: Employers do not have to make changes to comply with the Department of Labor’s (DOL’s) new overtime regulations by the December 1, 2016 deadline. In a surprising decision, a federal District Court in Texas issued an injunction halting the implementation of the new overtime rules nationwide. If the injunction remains intact when President-elect Trump takes office, it may allow the new administration additional avenues in which to seek to modify, amend or repeal the DOL’s overtime rule, even if further judicial action is not taken to ultimately overturn the regulations.

Texas Court Grants Nationwide Preliminary Injunction Enjoining Department of Labor from Implementing or Enforcing Regulation Raising Salary Level for White Collar Exemptions

Jackson Lewis P.C. • November 23, 2016
When two lawsuits were filed in Texas seeking to block the Department of Labor’s new overtime rule, which more than doubles the required salary level to qualify for the Fair Labor Standards Act “white collar” exemptions, few predicted the lawsuits would be successful. But the polls were wrong (again).

eLABORate: Texas Judge Blocks DOL's New Overtime Rules

Phelps Dunbar LLP • November 23, 2016
A federal judge in the Eastern District of Texas entered a nationwide preliminary injunction yesterday, blocking for now the U.S. Department of Labor (“DOL”) from implementing significant changes to the overtime rules applicable to white collar employees (the “Final Rule”). The Final Rule was set to go into effect on December 1, 2016.

New Exemption Rules Blocked - Now What?

Franczek Radelet P.C • November 23, 2016
Yesterday, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas dealt employers yet another surprise in this season of upsets with its decision in State of Nevada v. U.S. Department of Labor, halting the implementation of the DOL’s new FLSA overtime exemption rules, which were set to take effect December 1, 2016. The rules would have increased the minimum salary for exempt executive, administrative and professional employees from $455 per week to $913 per week, or about $47,476 per year. The court issued a nationwide injunction prohibiting the enforcement of the new salary threshold for exempt employees. As a result of the court’s ruling, the new rules will not take effect on December 1, the prior rules will remain in effect, and the timing of a change in the rules, if any, is completely up in the air.
