2016 was another busy year for employment lawyers and human resources professionals! Of course, the new overtime regulations dominated the headlines this year, and with good reason. The Texas court’s decision to delay implementation of the new overtime regulations is the latest development in this ongoing saga. In December, Suzanne King and Christine Worthen (formerly of Pierce Atwood) facilitated a lively discussion of the most significant developments in 2016 and the impact of these developments on employers in 2017.
