FLSA Workshops Announced for UT Employees and Supervisors

To prepare for the upcoming deadline to implement changes to the US Department of Labor Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) regulations, UT Human Resources is offering workshops for impacted employees and their supervisors.

UT Human Resources has been working closely with departments and units across campus to implement changes required by federal law. The law requires that employees who earn less than $47,476 be converted to nonexempt status on December 1.

UT Human Resources staff will conduct these workshops throughout the month of November. Several colleges and departments where there are large numbers of employees impacted by these updated regulations have requested workshops for their specific unit.
