Does Being a Salaried Employee Mean I'm Not Entitled to Overtime Compensation?

Being paid a salary does not necessarily mean you are not entitled to overtime compensation. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) was established in 1938. Under the FLSA, millions of employees are entitled to receive overtime compensation for hours worked in excess of forty (40) hours in a given work week. Generally, employees who are paid at an hourly rate of pay qualify for overtime pay.

The FLSA provides for certain exceptions for salaried employees. While there are salaried employees who are exempt from FLSA coverage, many are not. Many exemptions require not only that the employee be paid a salary, but that certain other criteria be met as well. The U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division has provided guidance as to what is needed for a salaried employee to be exempt from overtime. Many times employers have misclassified salaried employees as exempt, when they are, in fact, salaried non-exempt employees. Many salaried employees are entitled to overtime, but do not realize they qualify for FLSA coverage.
