Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

This site is intended to provide Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) related tools, job aids, and resources for employees, supervisors, and HR professionals, but your College/Unit HR Department is your primary contact and source of information on this topic.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law that prescribes standards for the basic minimum wage and overtime pay and affects most private and public employment.

The law, enforced by the US Department of Labor, requires employers to pay covered (Non-Exempt) employees who are not otherwise exempt at least the federal minimum wage and overtime pay at one-and-one-half-times their regular rate of pay.

Effective July 1, 2024, the DOL is raising the “standard exempt salary level” from the currently enforced level of $684/week ($35,568/year) to $844/week ($43,888/year).

Revisions include increases to the standard salary level and a mechanism that provides for the timely and efficient updating of these earnings thresholds to reflect current earnings data.
