Learn more about upcoming FLSA changes at Oct. 28 information session
As previously covered in UF at Work, changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) that will take effect on Dec. 1 will result in a significant number of positions becoming eligible for overtime pay when time worked exceeds 40 hours in a week.
Specifically, the new rule raises the minimum salary threshold for employees to be classified as exempt from overtime from $23,660 to $47,476. In other words, most employees who earn less than $47,476 annually will become eligible for overtime compensation when the new rule takes effect.
In order to comply with the FLSA change, employees who are currently in exempt-level positions, but who earn less than $47,476, will remain in their current job titles but transition into an overtime-eligible category titled “salaried non-exempt.” Additional information about the university’s response to the FLSA changes can be found online.
For those who would like more detailed information — including to staff who will be directly impacted by this change as well as managers of employees affected by the change — Human Resource Services will host an information session on Friday, Oct. 28, at 1:30 p.m., in Room 120 of the HR Building. Registration is available via myTraining.
