Court Invalidates DOL's Overtime Rule

Following up on its preliminary order issued last November, a Texas federal district court has ruled that the DOL's rule, which would have increased the minimum salary threshold for exempt "white collar" employees from $455 to $913 per week, is invalid. In its final order, the court said that the higher salary level impermissibly undercut the effectiveness of the duties test. The court also found that the mechanism that would have adjusted the salary level for inflation was invalid. The current salary threshold and duties test remain in effect.
