Important Information Regarding Overtime Changes

2016 Changes to Fair Labor Standards Act

On May 18th, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) released the final rule increasing the salary threshold for white-collar exemptions to the federal overtime pay requirements under the Fair Labor Standards Act from $23,660 to $47,476. DOL also announced that employers will need to be in compliance with the new rule by December 1, 2016.

The UNC HR department is working with departments around campus to make sure we are ready for the December 1st deadline. Letters will be going out in September to all employees letting them know if they are eligible for overtime (non-exempt) or not eligible for overtime (exempt). Here are some links for employees and supervisors to access for more information:
