New Overtime Pay Rules SUSPENDED

A Federal judge in Texas issued a nationwide injunction on Tuesday, November 22d, against an Obama administration regulation expanding overtime eligibility to millions of workers.
The regulation, scheduled to take effect on December 1, 2016 raised the salary limit below which workers automatically qualified for overtime pay to $47,476 (or $913 per week) from $23,660 (or $455 per week).
