FLSA Update


On November 22, 2016 a federal court in Texas issued a temporary injunction that makes it uncertain how the FLSA’s overtime pay exemptions apply to employees who would be impacted by the new rules that were to go into effect on December 1. Because of the court’s temporary injunction, those rules will not go into effect on December 1 as expected.  Therefore the FLSA salary threshold will remain $23,660 ($455 per week).  

In addition, the Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Human Resource Management (DHRM) has indicated that all state agencies must continue to follow the pre-December 1 regulation’s salary threshold of $23,660 until the case is resolved. 

To ensure that it is able to follow the laws that govern how employees are paid under the FLSA, JMU will operate as it has in the past with no new changes until additional information becomes available.

For questions regarding this temporary hold on the recently announced overtime changes, please contact your HR Consultant, call Human Resources at 540/568-7247.
