The U. S. Department of Labor (DOL)’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) recently finalized a rule amending the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime regulations. This is not a UAB decision; it is a federal law all employers must follow. This rule brings changes to the criteria determining exemption status under the FLSA. UAB Human Resources has assessed the impact of these adjustments to ensure a proactive and effective response. Consequently, starting June 30, 2024, it is possible that this position may undergo reclassification from exempt to nonexempt status. As a nonexempt employee, you will transition from monthly to biweekly payroll and must track and record all hours worked, adhering to UAB’s policies for nonexempt employees. If legal action occurs and the implementation of the FLSA change is blocked/paused, UAB will hold on making any changes, including moving employees from exempt to nonexempt.
