MBA wins case, revises MLO rule

The Mortgage Bankers Association won a case against the Department of Labor that vacated a previous decision that said mortgage loan officers do not qualify under the administrative exemption to overtime pay.

But despite the past definition, the Obama Administration reversed its position an declared that mortgage loan officers are not exempt under the FLSA. 

The Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled recently that an agency cannot revise an interpretation of a rule without notice and an open comment period.
