Running and Analyzing the FLSA Exempt Compliance Report in HRS

Overview

The FLSA Exemption Compliance Report identifies employees who potentially need a change in their FLSA Status from Exempt to Non-Exempt, accounting for exceptions due to job duties such as Doctor, Teacher, Lawyer, Camp Counselor or Academic Administrator that are legal exceptions to the rule. The report provides wages related to FLSA Jobs to assist with the analysis.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets guidelines for employers to determine whether employees are exempt from overtime. Overtime is time and a half of what an employee earns for every hour worked over 40 hours in a workweek. The FLSA salary threshold is the minimum salary employers must pay employees for them to be exempt from overtime wages. Beginning 1/1/2020, the threshold is $35,568 annually or $684 per week. There is an exception of UWMSN Job Code D80AN - Associate Lecturer, who must earn $33,568 annually or $649.12 per week. Anyone under the threshold must be eligible for overtime.
