Exempt Employee Threshold Stays the Same for Now
The US Department of Labor rule that raised the threshold on employees exempt from overtime has been blocked via an emergency injunction. Set to take effect on December 1, this rule and its widespread impact are currently on hold. Employers who had been ready to provide overtime to employees making up to $47,476 (instead of the previous $23,660 threshold) as of December are now given a break. Appeals are expected, but for now, the current rules apply.
