This morning's news reports that a federal district court in Nevada has granted a nationwide injunction against implementation of Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") overtime rule changes, originally set to take effect December 1. According to the report, the court ruled that the administration-initiated change "exceeds the authority the [Department of Labor] was delegated by Congress," and that implementation prior to a final adjudication would cause employers irreparable harm (one of the grounds required for an injunction). The Department of Labor is contemplating its options, and has has not indicated, yet, whether it will appeal the injunction.
