In July 2016, the Department of Labor finalized regulations for the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) that raised the minimum salary threshold from $455 per week (23,660 annually) to $913 per week ($47,476 annually) in order to meet the criteria to be paid salaried (exempt). Employees paid less than $47,476 per year had to be changed from salaried (exempt) to hourly (non-exempt) no later than December 1, 2016. Since PSU is in the middle of implementing the new GUS HR system, the decision was made to change affected employees from salaried to hourly effective with pay period beginning October 9, 2016.
Last week, a Federal District Court granted a nationwide preliminary injunction preventing the FLSA’s proposed new rule that raised the salary threshold to $47,476 annually from taking effect on December 1, 2016. PSU will take the following steps effective with pay period starting December 4, 2016:
Information will be sent to each affected employee and their supervisor later this week.

We have finalized the policy on compensatory time bank balances effective with go-live. Here is a link to the HRS web page with the new policy: http://www.pittstate.edu/office/hr/employee-benefits/compensatory-time-index.dot This week (week of July 18, 2016), we are sending letters to all supervisors with employees who currently have a balance over the new compensatory time bank balance maximum. The employee and division head are also getting the letter. Keep in mind that we are providing for an 18-month transition period to give supervisors and employees who are over the maximums ample time to work out a plan to be in compliance by May 2018.
Any PSU employee who is receiving a KPERS retirement benefit should review the new Working After Retirement rules effective July 1, 2016 found on the KPERS web site: www.kpers.org.

Employees should contact KPERS for more information at 1-888-275-5737. http://www.pittstate.edu/office/hr/employee-benefits/retirement-plans.dot
