Although President-elect Trump has indicated that he opposes the Department of Labor’s new overtime rule
, the rule is still scheduled to take effect on December 1. As such, NFIB is continuing to push for a repeal of the rule in Congress and in the court.
With regards to NFIB’s lawsuit challenging the rule, on November 16, Judge Mazzant will hear arguments on the Motion for Preliminary Injunction. NFIB counsel, Maury Baskin of Littler Mendelson, will argue on behalf of NFIB. Judge Mazzant has said that he will rule on the motion for preliminary injunction before December 1.
In the meantime, business owners are encouraged to participate in the free webinar
NFIB is offering next week. Business owners can also review our DOL Overtime fact sheet.
