What happens if employees move from full-time to part-time? Can they remain exempt?

After Dec. 1, 2016, if an exempt employee moves from full-time to part-time, he or she must be reclassified as hourly if the change causes the compensation rate to fall below $47,476. Managers should be sure to discuss this implication with any employee considering a reduced schedule. Prior to changing to an employee to part-time, there must be a conversation with Human Resources (i.e., Talent Acquisition and Compensation).
