Oklahoma AG Files Federal Complaint Challenging New Overtime Rule
Wednesday, September 28, 2016 12:25 AM

On Tuesday, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt announced that Oklahoma, along with 20 other states, filed a complaint in federal court challenging the U.S. Department of Labor's new overtime rule.

Per the AG's office, If implemented, the new rule will more than double the minimum salary overtime threshold for public and private workers without Congressional authorization. The impact for businesses and state and local governments is a substantial increase in their employment costs, which may force them to eliminate some services and even lay off employees.

The complaint urges the court to prevent the implementation of the new rule before it takes effect, which is scheduled for Dec. 1, 2016.
