House Votes to Delay DOL Overtime Rule

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.
