Court delays overtime rule from taking effect Dec. 1.

In a definitive ruling, the federal district court for the Eastern District of Texas granted an emergency request to delay the Dec. 1, 2016, effective date for the new federal overtime rule until it can rule on two challenges to the rule itself. See the court's ruling.

The court said today that the plaintiffs, in this case, 21 state attorneys general challenging the overtime rule, "demonstrated a substantial likelihood of success” on their case’s merits regarding the unlawfulness of the DOL's final rule. The court’s action stops the rule nationwide.

The NRA hailed the ruling. “The National Restaurant Association is cautiously optimistic with today’s decision by the Eastern District of Texas,” stated Cicely Simpson, the NRA's executive vice president of government affairs and policy. “This was a critical step in what we hope will be a positive outcome in the case against the Department of Labor.”
