Texas Federal Judge Postpones DOL’s New Overtime Rule ONLY for Employees Working for the State of Texas

By and
July 1, 2024

This past Friday, a Texas federal judge granted a preliminary injunction for the State of Texas, postponing the effective date of the Department of Labor’s new overtime rule. Currently, the injunction is limited only to State of Texas employees. All other employers must still comply with the final rule which went into effect today, July 1, 2024.

We will continue to monitor other pending legal challenges to the rule for their potential impact on the application of the rule nationwide.
