The rule covers employees at Institutions of Higher Education, including those funded by NIFA grants. The rule will entitle most salaried white collar workers, including those at colleges and universities, earning less than $913 a week or $47,476 a year to earn overtime pay for hours worked over 40 hours per week. The rule contains some exceptions, such as Bona Fide teachers.
