Due to a U.S. District Court injunction, the University of Arkansas has suspended plans to change the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) exemption status for employees who, due to the current salary threshold and related job duties test, are exempt from overtime eligibility.
The U.S. Department of Labor recently
revised the FLSA regulations in such a way that the overtime eligibility salary
threshold test would be pushed from $23,660 to $47,476.
A recent decision in a
lawsuit against the revised regulatory changes, however, has placed a
preliminary injunction on the implementation of those changes, which is in
effect across the country and which is expected to remain in effect throughout
The changes were scheduled for implementation on Dec. 1, 2016.
The University of Arkansas is complying
with the injunction and will not change the status of employees who are
currently exempt due to the salary threshold test, as previously scheduled. It will continue to follow the case and the injunction -- and will update
its policies accordingly.
