Do You Deserve Overtime Pay?

The Fair Labor Standards act states that every employee needs to be paid overtime, unless they meet one of several exemptions. Employees must be paid a salary of at least $455 per week to be eligible for overtime pay, but are exempt if they act in one of the following capacities:

  • Executive or managers: if you supervise the equivalent of 2 or more full time employees, and have the discretion to hire and fire people or your recommendations to hire and fire carry weight with the employer you fall within this exemption
  • Professional: if you are in a profession that requires a lot of education and you are using what you went to school for you may be exempt. Includes doctors, lawyers and accountants
  • Administrative: employees who perform non-manual work with extensive independence and discretion with regard to matters of importance to a business or make important decisions about money. Includes Chief Financial Officers

If you do not meet one of these exemptions and are compensated at least $455 per week, you may be eligible for overtime pay. Contact our firm today to schedule a free consultation to discuss your over time concerns.
