EHRA Conversion for Information Technology Professionals


In the 2017 Appropriations Act, the North Carolina General Assembly expanded the exemptions under the North Carolina Human Resources Act for EHRA non-faculty to include SHRA university information technology professionals.

As a result of this change in the law, any UNCP University employee currently in an SHRA FLSA exempt information technology classification (salaried and not subject to FLSA overtime rules) will be given an opportunity to convert to EHRA non-faculty status, or to remain in their current SHRA FLSA exempt position. SHRA non-exempt employees (those paid hourly and subject to overtime) will not be impacted by this change.

The UNC System Office anticipates approximately 2100 UNC System SHRA FLSA exempt employees will be eligible for conversion from SHRA to EHRA non-faculty status.  System institutions have not yet received the definitive date/period for when this change will become effective on our campuses.
