  • Late yesterday, a federal judge issued a preliminary injunction, temporarily blocking the Department of Labor’s (DOL) new Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime regulations from going into effect on December 1, 2016. What this means for employers in the short term is that the new overtime regulations - which, among other things, more than doubled the salary threshold for exempt employees to $913 per week - are on hold for now, pending final resolution from the court.
