  Employee Category Choice

Introduction to Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

  • Class Materials
  • Useful Web Resources
    • Exempt positions are considered salaried positions and do not normally receive additional compensation for overtime work. For more information on FLSA please refer to the US Department of Labor website. (http://www.dol.gov/compliance/laws/comp-flsa.htm
       
    • All classified employees, both exempt and non-exempt use an official hourly rate for payroll calculation purposes only, per the State of Wisconsin. The US Department of Labor has determined that while an official hourly rate is used to calculate wages, it is not the determining factor as to whether or not an employee is considered or treated as an “hourly” employee (non-exempt) or “salaried” employee (exempt) see Wisconsin Human Resources Handbook Chap 504.020 http://oser.state.wi.us/docview.asp?docid=4271 
       
    • Highly Compensated Employee Information
      Here is a link to the info from Department Of Labor: http://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/fairpay/fs17h_highly_comp.pdf
       
    • Wisconsin currently has minimum wage rates the same as the Federal rates. The UW-Madison must adhere to the law because all institutions of higher education are covered by the FLSA. UW-Madison is also a Wisconsin employer and is also covered by state minimum wage and overtime pay requirements. We must comply with both.
      For your reference: http://www.dol.gov/whd/minwage/america.htm
       
    • FLSA makes a distinction between employees and independent contractors because in order for FLSA to apply, there must be an employment relationship between the “employer” and “employee”. UW System Administration policy on defining whether the work someone is doing for the university is that of an employee or an independent contractor is provided for your reference.
