The New Overtime Rule May Never Take Effect-But Don’t Relax Just Yet

By of Jenkins Fenstermaker, PLLC on 12/06/2016

Will the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit allow the new overtime rule to go into effect? If it does, how long will it take for President-elect Trump and the Republican-led Congress to stop the rule? And what should employers do in the meantime?

On November 22nd, a federal judge in Texas issued a temporary injunction against the U.S. Department of Labor ("DOL"). That injunction prohibits the DOL from enforcing the new overtime rule. As expected, the DOL has filed an appeal with the U.S. Court of Appeals. A few days ago, the DOL also filed a motion with the appellate court seeking an expedited review of its appeal. This motion seeks to shorten the time for each side to file its written arguments with the court, so that the court can quickly proceed to consider the case and issue its ruling.

Idiopathic Falls and Workers Compensation In WV

By Steven K Wellman of Jenkins Fenstermaker, PLLC on 10/19/2016

How do courts decide whether injuries that result from on-the-job falls are compensable workers' compensation claims? Workplace falls are common and can lead to serious, even fatal injuries. No industry is free from the common hazard of idiopathic falls.
