DOL Overtime Final Rule

On May 23, 2016, the Department of Labor published “Defining and Delimiting the Exemptions for Executive, Administrative, Professional, Computer and Outside Sales Employees” (known as the “Overtime” final rule), which updates the regulations for determining whether white collar salaried employees are exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act's minimum wage and overtime pay protections. 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.
