Overtime Rule Appeal Rescheduled for June 30

The U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans has granted the Trump administration another extension in an appeal filed by the Obama White House over a federal court injunction blocking its proposed new overtime rule.

The Trump Department of Labor (DOL) cited a lack of leadership — i.e., the nominee for Secretary of Labor has yet to be confirmed — in seeking the extension.

The Obama-era overtime rule sought to raise the salary threshold for overtime pay exemption from $23,660 a year to $47,476. A district judge in Texas blocked the rule days before it was to take effect this past Dec. 1.
