The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) announced the final rule for the overtime eligibility changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to remain "exempt", with an effective date of July 1, 2024.

This rule increases the minimum salary threshold to $844 per week or $44,047 annually. The annual salary is based on UWF's 26.1 pay periods. Because of the UWF pay periods, the effective date for this change at UWF will be June 23, 2024.

Please review the following documents, Compensable Hours of Work and FLSA FAQs. Training for impacted employees is being held on June 10, 2024 at 3:30 pm and June 13, 2024 at 10:00 am. Training for supervisors of impacted employees is being held on June 13, 2024 at 11:30 am.
