NCISS Legal Alert

NCISS Legal Alert - Overtime Rule Blocked!

Friends and Colleagues,

The following is an alert from the NCISS Legislative Committee and LobbyIt. This full NCISS Legal Alert is available at

NCISS Legal Alert - Overtime Rule Blocked!
Yesterday, U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant of the Eastern District of Texas imposed a nationwide injunction against the Obama Administration's "overtime" rule (the subject of prior NCISS issue alerts). Judge Mazzant held that the Labor Department regulation exceeded the authority granted it by Congress, which he said gave Labor the right to define which workers are considered salaried but only based on the duties they performed, not by how much they made.

NCISS continues to monitor this activity, and will keep our members and profession advised of any progress and concerns.

The National Council of Investigation and Security Services, Inc., (NCISS -, is a cooperative effort of those companies and associations responsible for providing private security and investigation services to the legal profession, business community, government and the public. Each day we find an increasing number of problems confronting the orderly growth of our profession. These problems include, among others: overly restrictive legislation regarding training and standards, proliferation of legislation requiring local licensing, public misunderstanding and misinformation on the role and contribution of private investigators and security services, and an uninformed media. It is the role of NCISS to meet and solve these problems while seeking to uncover and recommend action on any hidden potential problems which may have an effect on our profession.

NCISS is developing new strategies to assist state associations strengthen and grow. We can use the help of individual memberships to NCISS. Details are at
