FLSA Overtime Eligibility and Exemption

  

   

Regulation Change

The changes to the regulations increase the required annual salary to be exempt from overtime (salaried) from $23,660 to $47,476.  This means that, beginning December 1, 2016, employees making between $23,660 and $47,476 will need to be paid overtime unless they fall into the doctor, teacher, lawyer, academic administrative personnel or outside sales exceptions.  For those employees on a 37.5 hour work week, overtime will need to be paid at a time and a half rate for all hours worked over 7.5 per day or 37.5 week.  For those employees on a 40 hour work week, overtime will need to be paid at a time and a half rate for all hours worked over 8 per day or 40 per week.  For Northern Illinois University, the work week is Monday through Sunday.
