Most Maryland business owners with employees are aware of the ruling that would have increased the maximum salary from $23,660 to $47,500 that a worker needs to earn for overtime pay eligibility on December 1. On November 22, however, Texas U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant granted a nationwide injunction against the ruling, siding with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and 21 states that were against it. As with any ruling like this, we expect there will be quite a bit of analysis and discussion on this topic in the coming weeks. For now, we want to make sure you are aware of it and pass on these articles from Reuters and NBC that go into more detail.
