FLSA changes temporarily blocked

In late November, a federal judge in Texas blocked the Obama administration’s effort to extend overtime pay to millions more workers, after 21 states and dozens of business groups asserted that the rule was unlawful and would cause them irreparable harm. The new rule was to take effect on December 1, 2016. The new rule, which updates the Fair Labor Standards Act, would make more full-time, salaried employees eligible for overtime pay. Now, with the new rule on hold, colleges must decide whether to continue with their plans to comply or to postpone them. The University will continue to monitor this issue.
