Tim Garrett Provides Update on DOL Overtime Salary Rule

The Corporate Counselor

Publications

September 8, 2017

Tim Garrett | Labor & Employment Attorney | Bass, Berry & SimsBass, Berry & Sims attorney Tim Garrett authored an article for the September 2017 issue of ALM's The Corporate Counselor providing updates to the long-discussed overtime salary rule. While the article outlines the rule's potential next steps following the Department of Labor's (DOL) July 25 Request for Information that could have led to a less dramatic increase in salary levels, an update to the article made shortly following its publication outlines a final ruling from U.S. District Judge Amos L. Mazzant striking down the Obama-era rule. While the article discusses the DOL's plan to appeal Judge Mazzant's original injunction halting the effectiveness of the new salary level nationwide, this latest ruling likely renders the appeal moot. "This final ruling goes a long way in sounding the death knell of the Obama-era overtime rule," Tim said of the latest update. 

More details on this update and its background can be found in the full article, "Federal Judge Rules on the Overtime Salary Rule," in the PDF below.

This is the second article in a series that Tim has authored on this topic for The Corporate Counselor. PDFs of the other articles are available in the links below:
