Overtime rule delayed after lawsuit filed

Overtime clock graphic for GAUA new overtime rule that was slated to go into effect on December 1 has been delayed. The regulation would have increased the salary threshold by which employers are required to pay overtime to employees from $23,660/year to $47,476/year. Following a September lawsuit filed by 21 states, including Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, a federal judge in Texas has granted a preliminary injunction to halt the U.S. Department of Labor’s December 1, 2016 implementation date.

The Chamber will continue to share information as details become available. In the meantime, please contact the Government Affairs team at with questions or comments.
