Q:

What is the full impact of the new ruling on FLSA for the University?



A:

The FLSA includes several provisions that limit its impact for institutions of higher education like Clemson University. Although employees at higher education institutions are generally covered by the FLSA’s minimum wage and overtime provisions, several provisions apply to many personnel at the University that make them ineligible for overtime and unaffected by this rule, regardless of whether they earn above the new salary threshold or not. Other employees, such as hourly employees, were already eligible by the past FLSA, and therefore will see no changes.
