Many employees are entitled to overtime pay if they work more than 40 hours in a given week. Employers sometimes misclassify their employees as “exempt” to avoid paying them overtime. Just because you are paid a salary does not mean you are exempt from overtime.
Exempt employees generally consist of executive, administrative, and professional employees. Exempt employees are not eligible for the overtime rate if they work in excess of 40 hours. Many factors are considered when determining if an employee is exempt, including whether your duties consist of executive, administrative, or professional work. If you have a question about whether you are exempt, please contact us for a free consultation.
