Court Blocks DOL's Final Persuader Rule

On March 23, the DOL issued its final persuader rule, officially titled the Interpretation of the 'Advice' Exemption in Section 203(c) of the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA), which drastically redefines "persuader" activity under Section 203 of the LMRDA. On June 27, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas issued a nationwide preliminary injunction that blocked the DOL from implementing the final persuader rule, which was scheduled to take effect  July 1. On Nov. 16, the court found the rule to be unlawful and permanently blocked it from going into effect.
