“Non-exempt” employees (i.e. hourly employees) and
certain salaried employees are also legally entitled to
overtime, which is calculated as ‘time and a half’ for
each additional hour worked beyond a 40 hour work week.
The nature of your job determines whether you are
entitled to overtime pay, not your employment status or
what type of work you do.
Several categories of salaried employees are exempt
from the minimum wage and overtime pay requirements
under federal law. Examples of such exempted employees
include independent contractors, executives,
administrators, and professionals, outside salespersons,
and state and local government employees.
