DOL Appeals Overtime Rule Injunction

Yesterday, the same day the new overtime rule was to go into effect, the DOL filed a notice of appeal challenging the Texas federal court’s decision to put a hold on the new overtime rule.  The appeal will be heard by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.   The timing of the appeals process will depend upon whether the DOL seeks expedited review, and the immediate impact on employers will depend, in part,  upon whether the  DOL obtains a stay of the injunction (which would mean the new overtime rule would go into effect during the pendency of the appeal).

More soon.

Here is the DOL’s announcement:
