JUDGE ISSUES INJUNCTION AGAINST NEW OT RULES
BREAKING NEWS: A Texas judge has placed a temporary injunction on the FLSA changes due to go into effect next week.  U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzano found that the states and business groups that sued to block the rule, have shown that they would be irreparably harmed if the rule was not enjoined. The dilemma:  Employers that have not yet made the salary changes or changes in employees’ status, may want to hold off from doing so. Those that have made changes need to decide if the want to back off those changes and that’s the tricky part.
Remember, this is just a temporary injunction so the changes may still go through at some point in the near future as the government “could” win a countermanding appeal. However, there is no telling when/if that may be and, for now, they are halted. More to come… -Damon Elmore, NAAAHR Atlanta General Counsel
