Postponement of FLSA Overtime Rule Change

On November 22, 2016, a U.S. District Court judge issued a preliminary injunction postponing the effective date of the Department of Labor’s overtime rule change.  The new overtime rule requires employees be designated as overtime eligible if they earn less than $47,476 per year or $913 per week.  The rule was scheduled to take effect on December 1, 2016.   It is expected that the Department of Labor will appeal the ruling, however it is uncertain how long that process may take. Due to this injunction, WSU will postpone converting employees to overtime eligible until this legal matter is resolved.  HRS will prepare letters notifying affected employees in the coming weeks.
