FLSA - Overtime Regulations

 

On November 22, 2016, a federal court judge in Texas issued a preliminary injunction that temporarily blocks the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) from implementing and enforcing its revised white collar overtime regulations on a national basis.  This page will be updated as further information is available.

The US Department of Labor has released the final rule on the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime regulations. The final rule becomes effective December 1, 2016.  The final rule extends overtime protections to workers by increasing the salary levels needed for white collar employees to be classified as FLSA exempt.  All employees affected by this change will be notified by letter. The Understanding Concerning Work Time and FLSA Compensatory Time will be included in the letter sent to employees. It must be signed and returned to the Division HR Representative.
