Member Alert – FLSA Overtime Rules Blocked


On November 22, 2016, a federal district court in Texas ruled that the new Fair Labor Standards Act overtime rules will not go into effect on December 1, 2016.  The court issued a temporary injunction so it could further consider whether the overtime rules should be permanently blocked. The injunction is effective nationwide, with no timetable for a final resolution.
