As mentioned in the recent training we created regarding the new FLSA overtime exemption rule, Nevada, along with several other states, had filed a lawsuit in the Eastern District of Texas against the U.S. Department of Labor seeking to block or at least modify the new rule. A motion was filed a couple of weeks ago seeking an injunction of the new rule while the case is pending. That motion for an injunction of the rule is now set for a hearing on November 16, 2016.
The new FLSA overtime exemption rule is set to go into effect on December 1, 2016. If the injunction is granted, however, it could delay the rule going into effect. For a copy of the motion for injunction click here.
