The Department of Labor recently revised the minimum wage and overtime standards in the Fair Labor Standards Act. Since the proposed overtime regulations were released in July 2015, the NCAA has worked closely with CUPA-HR and other higher education organizations to share information on the potential impact to athletics departments. The NCAA is providing a white paper (White Paper: Exempt Status of Coaches and Trainers) that analyzes the teacher exemption for coaches and trainers on campus. This white paper was composed in partnership with CUPA-HR and is meant to serve as a resource when applying the new regulations on each NCAA campus.
