Staff Fest 2016 was held on Friday, May 13th and thousands of Emory employees came out for a day of fun on the quad. An annual tradition at Emory, Staff Fest is always celebrated on the first Friday after commencement to show appreciation to university staff members for the hard work and support they provide to the university year-round.

Proposed Changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is proposing significant changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The purpose of the FLSA is to establish minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping and youth employment standards affecting most full-time and part-time workers. The DOL proposed changes would increase the minimum pay requirement needed for an employee to qualify for the exemption from overtime to $50,440 (up from $23,660). This change could impact close to 1,000 Emory University employees, transitioning them from exempt status to non-exempt status. Read more.
