DOL Appeals Overtime Injunction

Overtime Still Stopped

Published Friday, December 2, 2016

The Department of Labor (DOL) has appealed the November 22 injunction of the Overtime Exemption Rule. The appeal was filed with the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans in order to preserve the new mandate requiring employers to pay overtime to workers earning salaries less than $913 per week ($47,476 per year).

The new overtime rule was scheduled to go into effect on December 1, however, last week’s injunction has stopped its implementation while the case is being decided. The rule may be challenged by the Trump administration as well, making it difficult for the rule to ever be implemented.

Until the court rules on the appeal, the overtime rule remains stopped in accordance to the November 22 injunction. NCA will continue to monitor this case and keep you updated on further developments. If you have any questions regarding the overtime rule, please contact NCA Vice President of Government Relations Brad Steele at or 202-822-9822.
