Campus to pause FLSA implementation

UW–Madison will pause its implementation of changes related to the federal Fair Labor Standards Act that were scheduled to take effect on Dec. 1. A federal judge determined that the U.S. Department of Labor lacked statutory authority to make the changes and blocked their enforcement pending further review by the court. In response, UW–Madison is pausing most of the 3,300 previously scheduled position changes. This means that employees who were going to move to nonexempt (hourly) status will not make that change at this time.
