🏠 Preliminary Injunction Issued Preventing Implementation of the Revised FLSA Overtime Regulations

🏠 Preliminary Injunction Issued Preventing Implementation of the Revised FLSA Overtime Regulations

The US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas in the case of State of Nevada, et al v. United States Department of Labor et al issued a preliminary injunction enjoining the U.S. Department of Labor from implementing the revised FLSA overtime regulations on December 1st. The District Court concluded that the “significant increase to the salary level creates essentially a de facto salary-only test. Congress did not intend salary to categorically exclude an employee with [executive/administrative/professional] EAP duties from the exemption.” The District Court found that the Labor Department lacked the authority to implement automatic updates to the salary basis threshold. The District Court also decided that a nationwide injunction was appropriate in this case since the regulations apply to all states.
