Judge Issues Temporary Injunction Halting the Implementation of Overtime Pay Rule

overtimeOn March 13, 2014, President Obama signed a Presidential Memorandum directing the Department of Labor to update and modernize the regulations defining which white collar workers are protected by the FLSA’s minimum wage and overtime standards. The result of that update was the Overtime Final Rule which was set to go into place December 1, 2016.  This ruling, if implemented has a profound impact on non-profits, churches, and other religious ministries.

On Tuesday, November 22 a federal judge yesterday issued a nationwide temporary injunction halting the implementation of a new overtime pay rule scheduled to go into effect.

While it is believed that the judge will ultimately rule that the that the overtime rule is invalid, organizations “should remain attentive, however, to legal compliance in other still-applicable areas of overtime rules, such as making sure that the job duties necessary to meet the white-collar exemption are satisfied and that currently non-exempt employees are properly paid overtime.”
