Update from MSPB - FLSA Overtime Rule Injunction - Posted 11/29/2016
Several states, including Mississippi through the Office of the Governor, filed suit against the U.S. Department of Labor to challenge the overtime rule change scheduled to go into effect on December 1, 2016. As a result of the lawsuit, the U.S. District Court on November 22nd issued a preliminary injunction which has stopped the rule from going into effect at this time. Whether the rule change may have to be implemented at a later date will depend upon the final ruling in the lawsuit.
If you have already made changes to the exempt status of your employees in preparation to comply with the scheduled December 1st implementation, MSPB staff will be happy to assist you in processing necessary corrections to those changes. Requested corrections must be in accordance with current, applicable laws and regulations. If [MSPB] can be of assistance to your agency, please contact your assigned HCCP consultant.
