*On May 18, 2016, the United States Department of Labor finalized and announced new wage and overtime regulations that take effect on December 1, 2016. These new regulations will increase the salary level for overtime exempt status from $23,660 to $47,476/year (or from $1,972 to $3,957/month). Positions that include teaching as the “primary duty” will continue to be excluded from this new salary level. We are currently working on determining if any of the above salary minimums will be impacted.
