The Department of Labor (DOL) has officially dropped its support for the new overtime rule. The rule, originally scheduled to take effect in December 2016, was halted by a federal court soon before its enactment.

The DOL plans to revisit the overtime rule and use a lower salary threshold. However, in the meantime, the DOL asked that the court validate its authority to determine salary thresholds to be used in future rules. It is uncertain what the new threshold might be.
