SEEKING TO DELAY
The DOL's new rule on overtime will go into effect December 1, 2016. However, the House recently passed legislation that seeks to delay the effective date of the new rule until June 2017.
While this is a great step forward, this legislation still must pass in the Senate. There is not much time for the Senate to get the legislation passed before December 1st. This is because Congress has adjourned until after the election. The Senate will essentially have 6 voting days to get this legislation passed. The likelihood of it passing in that short amount of time isn't great, but there is always a possibility.
Plan for the new rule to be effective as of December 1, 2016.
