Yesterday, Congress voted to delay the start date for compliance with the DOL’s new overtime rule. As we posted earlier this week, the legislation proposes a six month delay, but does not propose substantive changes to the rule. According to Reuters, the vote was 246 to 177, with 5 Democrats joining 241 Republicans in voting for the legislation. The White House has indicated that President Obama will veto the legislation.
We will continue to track developments.
