Department of Labor Overtime Rules

The U.S. Department of Labor recently announced its final overtime regulations. Because of a federal lawsuit, the overtime rule will not go into effect as scheduled on December 1. Employers should note that this is only a temporary injunction, not a permanent one.  There will be a decision issued at a later date on the actual merits of the case, so changes in the FLSA salary threshold for exemption may be back. The following resources will help your organization prepare for this major policy shift.
