The Fair Labor Standards Act

Have you ever wondered why some staff at Emory are required to clock in and others are not?  Federal law requires Emory to apply the Fair Labor Standards Act to its workforce.

In order to comply, our Compensation Department is responsible for determining how each job title at Emory should be classified - nonexempt or exempt.  In order to be exempt from the overtime provisions of the Act, each job must satisfy a series of tests that factor in

  1. amount of compensation received, and
  2. an analysis of the job responsibilities

If the tests are not satisfied, the position will be classified as nonexempt from the overtime provisions and require the employee to record their time through time and attendance.

To better understand what the differences are and how this applies in the workplace the ways it does, review The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) Policy

If you have questions after reading it, feel free to contact your Employee Relations Director in Human Resources and also visit the Employee Relations webpage for other helpful HR information.
