FLSA Frequently Asked Questions
The purpose of this FAQ is to address key topics for UC Blue Ash employees and supervisors, regarding the transition from professional salaried (exempt) to professional hourly (non-exempt).
What is Changing?
The Department of Labor (DOL) updated the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) in May 2016, increasing overtime protection for employees with a base salary less than $47, 476 per year. This means that employees who fall under this salary threshold will be required by the federal government to transition from professional salaried (exempt) to professional hourly (non-exempt), effective October 1, 2016. These changes are in no way a reflection of your performance. Benefits elections, base rate of pay and/or job duties will not change due to the transition.
As always, please feel free to reach out to Amy Owens Smith, UCBA HR Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 513-558-9488 if you have any questions.
