FLSA Overtime Exemption Status Evaluation
Check to see if your job is exempt or non-exempt from the overtime pay laws. Many workers are misclassified and denied the overtime pay they are legally entitled to. If you are non-exempt, your employer is required to pay you at least time and a-half your regular pay rate for working overtime. If you are exempt, the overtime pay laws do not apply to your job and your employer is not required to pay overtime. If you have been unlawfully deprived of overtime pay, you can recover up to double your unpaid back wages.
