On Tuesday, November 22, 2016, a federal court issued a preliminary injunction to temporarily block the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) from implementing and enforcing its Final Overtime Rule nationally, pending further order by the court.

What does this mean to you?

  • As a result of the ruling, employers currently do not need to comply by the original December 1 effective date.
  • The injunction is temporary pending further review by the court.
  • We have no way of knowing if or when the status of the regulations will change.


Paychex is monitoring the situation, and we’ll update you on any new developments as they become available.

If you want to learn more about the Overtime Rule as it was originally written, we suggest that you visit the DOL website. You can also find news about the rule at Paychex WORX.

Contact your Paychex representative if you have questions.
