As was shared on November 23rd, a federal judge has issued an emergency injunction blocking implementation of the Fair Labor Standards Act overtime rule that was to go into effect on December 1, 2016.
In anticipation of the December 1 implementation, the University of Pittsburgh had already executed the necessary salary changes for certain positions and communicated these changes to the affected employees. The University will continue to honor these commitments and will make the prescribed salary changes effective December 1. However, all other aspects of implementing the new overtime rule, including transitioning certain positions from exempt to non-exempt status prior to November 27, 2016, will remain unchanged pending the resolution of the injunction.
