WASHINGTON – A federal judge in Texas on Nov. 22 blocked a new overtime rule from going into effect on Dec. 1. The rule would require employers to pay overtime for more than 40 hours of work per week for all employees earning up to $913 per week or $47,476 per year. The current threshold: $455 per week or $23,660 per year. The judge, Amos L. Mazzant III of the Eastern District of Texas, ruled that the Obama administration had exceeded its authority by raising the overtime salary limit so significantly. The Labor Department says it “strongly disagreed” with the decision and was “considering all of our legal options,” raising the possibility of an appeal, according to The New York Times. While the injunction is only a temporary measure that suspends the rule until the judge can issue a decision on the merits, his language indicates he will likely strike down the rule, the Times reported.
