28 What Is the FMLA? Federal law designed to protect employees when leave is required due to: – Serious medical situations/serious health condition of employee, parent, spouse, or child – Birth or adoption of a child – Foster care – Military Family Leave and other updates in 2008

29 Under the FMLA... All USPS, TEAMS, and salaried faculty are eligible – OPS employees, upon meeting criteria, have protection as well 12 workweek “entitlement” in the fiscal year (or 480 hours) – Prorated for part-time employees (OPS- 1,250 hours per year to be eligible)

30 FMLA Entitlement Leave must be approved unless FMLA entitlement has been met No additional paid leave is accrued under the FMLA – It is a designation associated with accrued vacation, sick, or leave without pay Accurate record keeping is essential

34 UF Employment Groups Faculty Appointments: Salaried Faculty (~4,900) Adjunct Faculty (OPS/Temporary) Other Appointments: Residents Fellows – Pre- and Post-Doctoral

35 UF Employment Groups Student Appointments: Student OPS Graduate Assistants

36 Staff Classification and Compensation Framework Designed to help ensure that staff positions similar in duties and responsibilities are grouped together Facilitates administration of funds allocated for wages and salaries in an equitable and legal manner

37 Reclassifications? When there is a significant change in the duties assigned to a position, a reclassification should be requested – Focus on duties and responsibilities assigned to a position, rather than the individual occupying the position – The employee should already be performing the work

38 In General … HRS can provide information related to: – What’s the average pay on campus for a particular classification? – What’s an appropriate range to use when advertising a vacancy that takes into account appropriate market data? – What’s an appropriate amount for a Special Pay Increase, or SPI – market, counter-offer, additional duties (temporary or permanent)?

39 Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) originally 1938 (updated in 2002)

40 Fair Labor Standards Act Prescribes standards for wages and overtime pay that affect most private and public employment Requires employers to pay covered employees (non-exempt) – Overtime pay of one and one-half times the regular rate of pay – At least the federal minimum wage

41 Fair Labor Standards Act Non-exempt - (hourly) – Not exempt from the FLSA – Must be compensated for hours worked over 40/workweek with overtime (1.5) – UF’s workweek: Friday–Thursday – NOT calculated on biweekly period “Exempt” – Exempt from, or not covered by, the provisions of the FLSA

42 Overtime Overtime compensation for USPS/TEAMS is provided either as pay or accrued compensatory leave – Both calculated at 1.5 – Employees cannot volunteer for their own job In the event of a disagreement between payment and compensatory leave accrual, it’s the employee’s choice

43 Overtime Even unauthorized overtime must be compensated if worked NOTE: OPS employees must be paid for overtime worked

44 Minimum Wage Federal - $7.25/hour State of Florida (Student and OPS) - $7.79/hour (effective January 1, 2013) UF Staff Employees - $10.00/hour
