New Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) Exempt Pay Rule
Implementation Currently Delayed
The U.S. Department of Labor recently announced an update to the salary level required for the executive, administrative and professional (“white collar”) exemption from overtime pay, sometimes referred to as “Overtime Expansion.” The exempt worker pay threshold is set to move on December 1st, 2016 from the current $455/week ($23,660/year) up to $913/week ($47,476/year), applicable to all employers in the U.S. Generally this means that certain groups of University workers may be newly eligible for overtime pay. There are certain provisions under the FLSA available to Public Higher Education Institutions such as the University of Utah. HR has formed a related task force and is working carefully with internal and external resources, to find workable solutions that are the least disruptive to the campus community.
