Welcome to the Employment Law section of our webpage. Employment law issues are complex, often subject to state and local law (not ordinarily covered on CLIC pages) as well as federal law. This front page will reflect our most current information on employment law affecting educational institutions.

Defining and Delimiting the Exemptions for Executive, Administrative, Professional, Outside Sales and Computer Employees, Final Rule, 80 Fed. Reg. 32391, May 23, 2016.

This rule is effective Dec. 1, 2016. Under this final rule, white collar employees subject to the salary level test earning  less than $913 per week (or $ 47,476 per year for a full time worker) will not qualify for the EAP exemption, and therefore will be eligible for overtime, irrespective of their job duties and responsibilities. Employees earning this amount or more on a salary or fee basis will qualify for exemption only if they meet the standard duties test, which is unchanged by the final rule. See the summary on the DOL web page for more. The DOL web page also includes Guidance for Higher Education Institutions on Paying Overtime under the New Rule.
