The new FLSA overtime regulations which were set to increase the exempt salary threshold to $47,476 on December 1, 2016, have been temporarily suspended by Judge Amos L. Mazzant, III.
Their implementation has been suspended until their legality can be determined. The court will hold hearings to determine whether or not the DOL had the authority to make the new rules. At the conclusion of the hearings, the new overtime rules will either be discarded or take effect.
For now, you can proceed as if the rule is on hold pending judicial review.
