Obama administration appeals overtime pay injunction
Making good on a promise to pursue all possible legal avenues, the Department of Labor is appealing a temporary injunction placed by a federal judge last week on its new overtime pay rules. The notice of appeal, filed by Secretary of Labor Thomas Peretz and representatives of the U.S. Department of Labor, aims to lift a temporary injunction against overtime changes that were scheduled to take effect Dec. 1. The appeal was filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans.
