Fair Labor Standards Act Webpage Announced
Human Resources continues to work on analyzing the changes to the overtime rule which increases the salary threshold for a position to be considered exempt from overtime.
As announced, on May 18, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) released the final rule increasing the salary threshold from $455 per week to $913 per week for a position to be considered exempt from overtime.
Employers will need to be in compliance with the new regulations by December 1, 2016.
Positions with a primary responsibility of teaching (including faculty) are not effected by the DOL change.
Human Resources has created a dedicated webpage with information on the new FLSA standards including a timeline for implementation, updated Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and other useful resources. The webpage can be found here http://www.mtu.edu/hr/supervisors-admins/flsa/
Updates will be made to the webpage and FAQ’s as additional information is released and/or determined.
We ask you continue to direct any questions regarding this DOL change to Employment Services in Human Resources at 7-2280.
