Department Of Labor’s Overtime Rule Struck Down

On Thursday, August 31st, Texas federal Judge Amos Mazzant struck down the Obama administration’s controversial rule which would have significantly increased the salary threshold and expanded overtime protections potentially to millions of workers previously considered overtime exempt under the FLSA.  Judge Mazzant granted summary judgment to more than 55 business groups saying the U.S. Department of Labor improperly used a salary-level test to determine which workers are exempt from overtime compensation. The existing overtime regulations from 2004 remain in effect and an appeal of the order by the Department of Labor under the Trump administration is unlikely.
