Guidance for Beverage Retailers - Overtime Rule on Hold

Source: ABL

On Tuesday, November 22, a federal judge in Texas issued a preliminary injunction halting the enforcement of the Department of Labor's (DOL) new overtime rule until further notice. The rule, which was set to take effect on December 1, 2016, would have increased the salary threshold for "white collar" employees.

The judge's ruling gives employers across the country a reprieve from having to raise salaries for exempt employees to the new threshold or pay them overtime.
