FLSA Overtime Rule Resources

On Wednesday, May 18, 2016, the Department of Labor (DOL) issued new regulations addressing the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The final rule, which takes effect on December 1:

  • Sets the overtime wage threshold at $913 per week or $47,476 per year, pegged to the 40th percentile of earnings of full-time salaried workers in the lowest-wage Census Region (currently the South).
  • Automatically increases the threshold every three years, beginning on January 1, 2020.
  • Recognizes graduate and undergraduate students who are engaged in research or serving as residential advisors to be in an educational rather than an employment relationship with the institution.
  • Affirms that graduate students whose primary duty is teaching or serving as teaching assistants fall under the FLSA's teaching exemption.

Below you will find guidance and fact sheets posted by DOL and numerous resources from other organizations. Two DOL documents in particular address the impact on colleges and universities:
