District Court Recognizes Inherent Flaws of Overtime Final Rule

On June 28, the US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas issued a temporary restraining order blocking implementation of the Department of Labor’s overtime final rule for Texas state employees.

The following statement can be attributed to PPWO spokesperson Josh Ulman:

“PPWO and many of our members warned DOL that aspects of the rule didn’t comply with the law, and the judge appears to agree. While the scope of the injunction is limited, the chances the rule will be struck down have increased, and DOL should stay the rule pending the outcome of the litigation.”
