What Does the Preliminary Injunction Mean for Employers?

On the heels of the preliminary injunction issued yesterday, which postpones the effective date of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL)’s overtime rule, Alex Passantino of Seyfarth Shaw LLP has provided guidance on how employers should proceed.

In the article "Texas Judge Preliminarily Enjoins New Overtime Exemption Rules Nationwide: What Steps Should Follow?" Passantino, who authored CUPA-HR's white papers on the FLSA overtime rule, offers great information on the status of the rule and thoughts on how employers should handle the situation going forward.

As stated in yesterday's alert, it is expected that DOL will appeal this ruling quickly; however, it is uncertain how long the appeal may take.
