Updates have been approved to two University of Tennessee policies concerning fair employment practices and sexual and other harassment. All employees—especially supervisors—should be aware of the revisions.
On Tuesday, Nov. 22 a federal district court issued a nationwide injunction halting implementation of revisions to Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) regulations. Because of the injunction, those rules will not go into effect as expected on Dec. 1.
The changes, announced in May, apply to all private and public employers in the nation. UT staff members who are paid less than $47,476 become non-exempt employees on Dec. 1. The rule change is intended to provide employees with important wage and hour protections.
The new regulations mean that most employees paid less than $47,476 a year will become non-exempt Dec. 1, 2016.
