As a Syracuse University staff member, you impact the experience of thousands of students who are pursuing their dreams for the future. Staff not only provide direct and indirect services that keep the University running smoothly, but also serve as role models for our students. In both these roles staff are extremely important to the mission and vision of the University.

Exempt and Non-Exempt Staff

All staff positions are classified as either non-exempt (hourly) or exempt (salaried) according to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The law outlines a set of criteria relating to job responsibilites that are used to classify jobs as non-exempt or exempt.

Non-exempt staff are subject to FLSA overtime provisions and must be paid time and one-half their regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours in a week.

Exempt staff are not subject to FLSA overtime provisions and are paid an annual salary for all hours worked.
