Update on the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Impact on UW Post-docs
As announced earlier, the Department of Labor (DOL) issued in May the final ruling that mandates an increase in the minimum salary for postdocs. However, recently a federal court injunction has suspended the new requirement causing some uncertainty as to how the university would react.
At UWPA, we look forward to the announced changes and we are continuously monitoring the implementation of these changes throughout the university. We ask postdocs to report any problems encountered regarding the implementation of these changes to UWPA and also to the relevant university offices, namely the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs and the Office of Academic Personnel.
