A federal judge ruled to block the implementation of the Department of Labor’s Overtime Rule, on Wednesday. This rule would have doubled the salary threshold under which workers receive overtime pay to $47,476. It was expected to take effect Thursday, December 1, and increase costs significantly to businesses, not-for-profits and associations.
The Irving-Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with our partners at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Texas Association of Business and more than 40 other Chamber’s, business groups and associations filed a challenge on September 20 in the Eastern District of Texas. U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant, sided with the voice of business, that the proposed rule is unlawful. This is a victory for our business community in Irving, Texas.
