Order Blocking the New DOL Overtime Rule to be Appealed

December 1, 2016

The National Council of Nonprofits has reported that the U.S. Departments of Labor and Justice on Thursday, December 1, filed a
Notice of Appeal to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals challenging the
district court judge’s order
 (issued last Tuesday) blocking enforcement of the 
Overtime Final Rule
. We will share more information about the substance of the appeal and timing as it becomes available.  
See our blog
 for more on last week’s order.  The Notice of Appeal itself does not lift or stay the injunction issued last week.
