BizPoll: Your reaction to the delay of the new federal overtime rule

Let us know

A Texas federal judge recently blocked the implementation of the new federal overtime rule, and the U.S. Department of Labor filed an appeal of that ruling.

The rule, which was set to go into effect Dec. 1, would significantly increase the minimum salary threshold at which non-exempt employees are required to receive overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act, to $47,476. Businesses have been preparing for the rules by adjusting their employees’ hours and pay structures.

A group of 21 states, including Wisconsin, had sued the U.S. Department of Labor and Secretary Tom Perez to block rule.
