New Federal Overtime Regulation and Higher Education

A Livestreamed Conversation with ACE and Campus Experts

June 17, 2016 1:00 PM

This live ACE webcast featured a four-person panel of experts discussing the potential challenges campuses will face in implementing the new federal Fair Labor Standards Act overtime pay regulation unveiled May 17 by the Department of Labor.

The new rule raises the salary threshold to $47,476 from its current level of $23,660, which will turn many lower level, salaried employees into hourly workers who are eligible for overtime pay. Among those workers likely to be impacted are a wide array of non-faculty employees, including athletic coaches and trainers, admissions recruiters and student affairs officers.

The webcast provided insights and context into the ramifications of the new overtime rule for senior leaders from campus function areas such as human resources, student affairs and business offices.

Watch the video of the webcast.
