Important News on
Federal Overtime Regulations
On Tuesday evening, ahead of the long holiday weekend, a federal judge in Texas issued an injunction on new rules for overtime pay that affects Maryland business owners and employees.
U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant effectively held off a Dec. 1 start for a new Department of Labor rule nearly doubling the salary that makes employees exempt from overtime pay requirements. The rule would require such employees to make $913 per week, up from $455. The injunction came after 21 states and a coalition of business groups, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, sued to block the rule. Maryland was not one of the states involved in the case, but the rule, and the injunction, would apply here.
The Talbot County of Commerce is encouraged with the news that this proposed change to existing regulations has been, at a minimum, delayed in its implementation. The Chamber, as the voice of businesses in Talbot County, Maryland, has concerns that this proposed regulation will have substantial and harmful impact on our small business members and nonprofits.
We will continue to monitor this federal suit and update you as necessary.
