Texas Judge Grants Nationwide, Preliminary Injunction on Implementation of New FLSA Regulations

Approximately one hour ago, a federal judge in Texas granted a nationwide, preliminary injunction preventing the majority of the new FLSA regulations from taking effect on December 1, 2016.  The Court found that the state plaintiffs established a prima facie case that the United States Department of Labor's salary level and the automatic updating mechanism are without statutory authority, and that the public interest is best served by the injunction preserving the status quo.
