Overtime Exceptions? Exemptions!


The Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) requires that an employer pay employees overtime -- at least one and a half times the employee’s base pay -- for all hours worked in excess of forty (40) hours in one workweek. However, certain employees are “exempt” from the FLSA’s overtime mandate if the employee meets certain federally-mandated requirements. For an employee to be considered exempt, there are three tests that the employee must meet:

1. the salary level test;

2. the salary basis test and;

3. the job duties test

Because FLSA regulations regarding exemptions can be complex, this article briefly outlines these three tests and the FLSA requirements for properly exempting an employee.
