FLSA Update

On November 22, 2016, a U.S. District Court judge issued a preliminary injunction to postpone the implementation of the Department of Labor's (DOL) overtime rule under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) which was intended to become effective on December 1. 

Although the injunction prevents the implementation of the new overtime regulations that were scheduled to take effect on December 1, 2016, however Tulane will move forward with the changes to employee salaries and classifications as planned and previously communicated.

The university will continue to closely monitor legal developments regarding the injunction and the FLSA, and reserves the right to undertake additional changes in compensation, employee classifications and time keeping processes in the future.
