Fair Labor Standards Act

FLSA Update

Updates by the U.S. Department of Labor to the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) effective December 1, 2016 has been postponed. 

As a result, Northern Michigan University will not move forward with changing impacted positions from exempt to non-exempt status effective November 20. These positions will continue to be exempt. Therefore, employees who were instructed to track their time differently as a result of moving to non-exempt status will remain exempt and make no changes at this time.

We will continue to monitor if and how any of the proposed changes to the law are impacted and communicate to employees and managers as we know more. If the meantime, please feel free to contact Julane Cappo (ext. 1493), Renee Sheen (ext. 2331) or Rhea Dever (ext. 2333) if you have any questions.


For those employees who were always classified as non-exempt, and the supervisors of those employees, may still use the resources found in pages listed to the right.



For questions or assistance, contact your supervisor or the Human Resources Office at 227-2330 or hr@nmu.edu.
