Expedited Overtime Appeal Requested by DOL

bigstock-140800928In an effort to move forward with the new Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime provisions, the Department of Labor (DOL) has filed a motion to “fast track” their appeal of the November 22nd Texas court decision that delayed the implementation of the new overtime laws. The motion states that “the DOL is seeking to have its opening brief filed on December 16, 2016, and to have all briefing completed by February 7, 2017”. Even if the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit approves the motion, it is expected that the case will not be decided until after January 20, 2017.
