  • A federal district court in Texas issued a nationwide preliminary injunction barring the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) from enforcing its Final Rule implementing higher salary requirements to qualify for an overtime exemption. That Final Rule, which was scheduled to take effect on December 1, 2016, would more than double the minimum salary required for an employee to be eligible for executive, administrative, and professional classifications that are exempt from overtime under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act.
