Fair Labor Standards Act General Statement
On November 22, 2016, a federal court issued an order which has temporarily blocked the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) changes from going into effect on December 1, 2016.
The University will continue to monitor the impact of the court’s ruling and update this website when more information is available.
The following information is being provided to departments and impacted employees regarding the recent revisions to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) regulations.
The foremost change in the regulations is the dollar amount for the salary test to determine if an employee receives overtime pay. A change was made to the salary test that determines whether a position is exempt or non-exempt from the regulations. The former salary test amount was $455 per week or $23,660 per year and the new amount is $913 per week or $47,476 per year. Additional resources are available below.
Please contact UNO Human Resources with any specific questions at 402.554.2321 or confidentially email your inquiry directly to FLSA Questions and someone will respond promptly.
