Will the Overtime Rule Delay Impact College Salaries?
Despite the November 22 injunction delaying the Department of Labor’s final overtime rule , numerous college employees are still getting raises. Issued earlier this year, the final rule increases the salary threshold for overtime pay and offered a teaching exemption for non-faculty employees and postdoctoral fellows that primarily conduct research. The injunction shelved the rule’s December 1 effective date, but some higher institutions have already implemented their payroll changes and want to avoid damaging employee relations. Other colleges and universities still plan to postpone salary changes due to the injunction. More on the final overtime rule injunction and its impact on colleges can be accessed on Inside Higher Ed.
