In a recent question and answer interview, Brian Dickens identified changes to federal regulations as an immediate priority for the Office of Human Resources.  The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), recently amended, governs federal minimum wage and overtime pay requirements. This amendment was widely published as “the new overtime rule”. The new rule doubles the minimum salary for employees to qualify as “exempt” from the requirement of paying overtime for any hours worked in excess of 40 in a work week.
