DOL Persuader Rule Blocked

By: Leigh Merino
Date: November 22, 2016

Last week, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas issued a permanent nationwide injunction preventing the implementation of the Department of Labor’s (DOL) Persuader Rule, which increases reporting requirements for employers and their legal counsel retained for labor and workforce issues. The Court had previously issued a Preliminary Injunction Order invalidating the Persuader Rule this summer.  An appeal of the injunction is currently pending in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.  For more information, please contact Leigh Merino.
