Whether the Department of Labor’s 2024 Overtime Rule is unlawful because it once again makes an employee’s duties, functions, or tasks irrelevant if the employee’s salary falls below the new minimum salary level and makes salary rather than an employee’s duties determinative of whether a ‘bona fide executive, administrative, or professional capacity employee’ should be exempt from overtime pay.

Today, the Restaurant Law Center, the Texas Restaurant Association, the Plano Chamber of Commerce and a coalition of national business groups filed a lawsuit seeking to vacate the Department of Labor’s 2024 Overtime Final Rule. In the filing, the coalition argues that by issuing a rule raising the minimum salary for the executive, administrative or professional exemption far beyond a level which DOL is permitted to adopt, and including an unlawful triennial “escalator” provision, DOL is acting in defiance of a previous decision by the Court.
