$1,128 Per Week Salary Threshold: Judge Blocks Biden’s Overtime Pay Rule in Texas, Affects Millions of Workers!

Judge Blocks Biden’s Overtime Pay Expansion

Legal Battle Looms

According to INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS TIMES, a federal judge in Texas has blocked a Biden administration rule that aimed to expand overtime pay eligibility by raising the salary threshold. U.S. District Judge Sean Jordan issued the injunction in response to legal challenges from Texas and business groups who argued the rule would place significant financial burdens on employers.

The blocked rule originally slated to begin enforcement soon would have required employers to provide overtime pay to salaried workers earning less than $1,128 per week when they worked more than 40 hours. Advocates of the rule contended that it would ensure fair compensation for millions of workers currently excluded due to outdated salary thresholds. However Judge Jordan’s ruling prevents the rule from being enforced in Texas while the legal proceedings continue. This move could potentially lead to an appeal to the conservative-leaning 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
