On December 8, 2016, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals granted the Department of Labor’s request for an expedited appeal in the Texas overtime litigation. Recall, this is the litigation that put a halt to the December 1, 2016 revisions to the FLSA salary thresholds for white collar workers. What does this mean for employers? The wait continues. Briefing will take place through late January 2017, and then oral argument will be scheduled thereafter. Notably, this means that the DOL will be under the oversight of President-Elect Trump before it goes to oral argument, and therefore it may chose to drop the appeal at that time. I’ll keep you posted.
