Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Tim Garrett provided insight for an article outlining the case brought by 21 states challenging the Department of Labor (DOL) related to the new overtime regulations set to take effect December 1, 2016. Although the challenge is under review, Tim still is advising “that employers continue to plan to comply with the new rule effective Dec. 1, unless the court does impose a nationwide injunction. The risks of failing to comply are simply too great and can lead to immediate legal exposure.”

The full article, “Court’s Decision on Overtime Rule Expected Soon,” was published on the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) website on November 17, 2016, and is available online.
