A late ruling by a Texas federal judge puts a temporary hold on the implementation of the Department of Labor overtime regulations scheduled to go into effect on December 1.
Gina M. Ameci is quoted in The Philadelphia Inquirer article on the issue, "Judge squelches new OT regs: Now what?"
Ameci said her clients, now faced with a period of uncertainty, would now have to weigh their risks. Should they roll back new policies to save money and then face potential liability if the regulation is ultimately upheld? That risk might be worth it, she said, for nonprofits who often have people doing professional work, but earning in the $35,000 a year range.
