1. Proposed Overtime Rules For Salaries Employees Raise Concerns
by Katherine Knott, Inside Higher Ed
“Thousands of employees at colleges and universities, including admissions officers, student affairs professionals and athletics staffers, could become eligible for overtime pay under a new proposal from the Biden administration.
Currently, salaried employees who make more than $35,568 a year and work in an “executive, administrative, or professional capacity” are exempted from receiving overtime pay when they work more than 40 hours in a week. The Biden administration wants to raise the salary cutoff for these “white-collar exemptions” to $55,068—a 55 percent jump that could expand overtime eligibility to 3.6 million salaried workers across all sectors of the economy.
The shift could mean big changes to lower-paid salaried jobs at higher education institutions, though faculty members and nonfaculty workers focused primarily on research wouldn’t be affected because of a teaching exemption in federal labor law.”
