A preliminary injunction was issued Tuesday, November 22 preventing the overtime rule going into effect as scheduled on December 1. As you recall, the threshold pay required for an exemption from overtime was more than doubled to $47,476. Pending further action, this ruling temporarily bars the new regulation from going into effect nationwide.
Please note this is a preliminary injunction. This preserves the status quo in order for the court to decide whether the Department of Labor exceeded its authority. Stay tuned for further developments.
