WHD Wage and Hour Division

*This is basically a notes page for myself to keep track of the FLSA Final Rule while we wait for a ‘Final Ruling of the outcome….

Salary and compensation legislation notes on FLSA Final Rule, this is a good link for what the Final Rule was supposed to be: https://www.dol.gov/WHD/overtime/final2016/faq.htm

Here’s the short ditty on the DOL Final Rule posted on the US DOL WHD website Fall 2016.

Final Rule: Overtime

Defining and Delimiting the Exemptions for Executive, Administrative, Professional, Outside Sales and Computer Employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act



November 22, 2016 – emergency motion for preliminary  injunction to prevent Final Rule from taking effect December 1, 2016

December 1, 2016 – DOJ files notice of appeal on behalf of DOL (U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit)


January 3, 2017 – the motion to appeal was denied by Amos Mazzant, US District Judge


Still cannot locate a final decision other than the note below from June 2017 that appears to show some movement by the DOL on whatever might be their proposed changes?

June 27, 2017 – post on DOL website…US Labor Department sends Request for Information on overtime rule to Office of Management and Budget
