Updated on July 28, 2017: On July 26, 2017, the U.S. Department of Labor issued a request for information about the overtime rules. This means the public (both employers and employees) have been invited to comment on the rules.
On December 1, 2016, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) filed a notice of appeal in Nevada v. U.S. Department of Labor. The appeal comes as a result of a U.S. District Court in Texas issuing a nationwide injunction against the DOL’s new overtime rules that were to go into effect on December 1. The appeal was filed in the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals (docket number 16-41606).
Update to this post: On December 1, 2016, the U.S. Department of Labor filed a notice of appeal in this case. We will now have to "stay tuned" for a decision by the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
