HR NEWS FLASH – Court stops overtime rule change
We have been reporting throughout the year on the new federal overtime rules approved by President Obama in May of this year.
Yesterday, US District Judge Amos Mazzant granted a preliminary injunction that temporarily halts the implementation, which was set for December 1, 2016.
According to an article published by the Society for Human Resources Management, twenty-one states and several business groups filed motions to prevent the new rule from taking effect.
The injunction is not permanent, but at the same time could lead to more scrutiny of the rule and changes to it could still be made.
Many of our clients have already taken steps to comply with the rule changes…it was in fact scheduled to take effect next week…but for many others they may still be able to postpone any changes until this is resolved.
If you want to review your plans and the alternatives based on this late change, contact us to learn how we can assist you.
Oh…and Happy Thanksgiving
