I am in the process of hiring new staff. What should I say and what should I put in offer letters about the position’s FLSA status?

Current job postings and offer letters do not indicate exempt status so no changes are needed. During the interview process, if the question of overtime eligibility comes up, you can say the position is subject to FLSA review and that the job category and exemption status could change as a result. As of Dec. 1, 2016, there will be a revised Unclassified Employment Agreement that will reflect the new category of Unclassified Salaried Non-exempt full time.
