Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

Important Update: November 23, 2016

The University of Oregon, like many other government entities and businesses across the country, has been preparing to comply with new federal regulations related to the minimum salary threshold that would exempt certain employees from overime regulations.  A number of changes were to be implemented on December 1, in accordance with the federal guidance issued by the Department of Labor.  However, a federal district court in Texas issued a preliminary injunction against those federal regulations.

UO will await further guidance from the courts before deciding to make planned changes to compensation and overtime practices at the university.  All FLSA changes and implementation has been paused until further notice.
