Tim Garrett Discusses Potential Delay in Implementation of Overtime Rules

September 30, 2016

Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Tim Garrett discussed the potential delay in implementation of the new overtime rules for an article in Nation's Restaurant News. A bill that could delay the implementation of the overtime rules by six months cleared the House on September 28, 2016, but the bill faces a potential veto by the President if it progresses pass the Senate. Tim notes that the real battle for the legislation will be whether it can garner the two-thirds vote needed to override the potential veto. "'I would be surprised,' Tim said. 'This is a difficult political point to make it appear as though a senator or congressman is against an increase in pay for the middle class.'" Meanwhile, the lawsuits challenging the rule are not likely to delay the December 1, 2016, implementation date, but Tim suggests that the legal challenges could potentially result in a revision of the rules to eliminate the automatic threshold hikes.

The article, "House Approves Delay in Overtime Rule Implementation," was originally published on September 29, 2016, by Nation's Restaurant News and is available online. In addition, the content was repurposed in the following outlets:
