New Labor Rules Announced

The U.S. Department of Labor has increased the salary threshold the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to $47,476 annually ($913 weekly) from $23,660. This means that employees whose salary falls below the new threshold must be paid hourly, report hours work, and be compensated for overtime. The new FLSA rules go into effect December 1. OHR is working closely with HR departments campus-wide on how the specifics of the new rule will be implemented to ensure compliance. We will provide more information once the new federal regulations are fully interpreted.
