Employees: New Overtime Rule Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

In May 2016, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which governs federal minimum wage and overtime pay requirements, was amended. The overtime rule updates the salary threshold under which most “white collar” workers, previously considered exempt, may now be entitled to overtime compensation. The final rule will raise the salary threshold from $455 a week ($23,660, 12 month annual salary) to $913 a week ($47,476, 12 month annual salary) and will become effective December 1, 2016. Human Resources is working with managers to review the job titles that may be affected by this change. This work will continue to the middle of October to produce a coordinated set of university-wide recommendations that ensure our compliance.

Ongoing communication and informational sessions will be provided to both managers and affected employees over the next couple of months to ensure opportunities for questions and education.

For further details, please take a moment to read this document: Guidance for Higher Education Institutions on Paying Overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act
