FLSA Information

On August 19, 2016, a memo was distributed from Chris DeBord, Vice President, Talent and Culture, regarding implementation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

The changes implemented to the FLSA is to determine if jobs are eligible for overtime pay for actual hours worked in excess of 40 hours in a workweek. The impact could be approximately 570 positions at WVU and our regional campuses.

This change will increase the number of staff that will be required to use MyTime, either as a Supervisor, who will approve and edit time cards or Employees that will be clocking in/out for time worked.

To assist this group, Payroll, Benefits and Information Technology has scheduled training classes to demonstrate the MyTime features, leave request, role of the supervisor, role of the employee and Payroll/Benefit cut off dates.  

Separate classes will focus on the changes by role.   One class for the supervisor role and another class for the employee role. 

To register for a class for your designated role (Supervisor or Employee) please log into http://wvu.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_3yB9eapaQ0sP3Kt

Employees moving to non-exempt status will begin clocking on November 16th.

It is imperative supervisors and employees understand the importance of how the payroll is handled for non-exempt employees. If time cards and leave are not appropriately handled, an employee’s pay will be incorrect.  Leave submissions are required to be approved in a timely manner so the employee is paid for their leave through their time card.

This training is not mandatory but suggested.  In preparation of classes, attendees could access the training information at https://IT.wvu.edu/services/training/mytime
