Overtime Pay FLSA on HOLD
Overtime Pay FLSA on HOLD. Yesterday, Judge Amos Mazzant III issued an injunction blocking the overtime rule changes that were set to take effect on December 1.
The New FLSA Overtime Rules changes would have raised the white collar exemption from $455/week ($23,660/year) to $913/week ($47,476/year). This is welcome news for groups struggling with the impact of the rule-both to their budgets as well as its impact on workplace flexibility and employee morale.
At this time, employers do not need to implement changes by the December 1, 2016 deadline. After hearing the full case, the court could allow the rule to go forward. The incoming Trump Administration now has more time to make changes, including ending the rulemaking permanently or issuing a new rule with a more reasonable salary threshold, as SHRM and Employers have advocated.
