5th Circuit Halts Litigation on 2016 Overtime Rule

FLSA icon1 min read

On November 6, 2017, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted a motion from the Department of Labor (DOL) to halt litigation over the Obama-era FLSA Overtime rule, that would have extended overtime protection to some four million workers in the U.S. This pause will make the possibility of the 2016 overtime rule ever going into effect unlikely, though changes to the current overtime rule are still expected.
