Thousands of Salaried Employees are Owed Overtime. Are You Entitled to Overtime Pay?
Most people believe that employees paid on a salary basis are never entitled to overtime. This is NOT true. Many employers attempt to avoid paying overtime wages by simply giving their employees a salary and telling their employees that all salaried employees are exempt from overtime. However, even salaried employees may be entitled to overtime pay when they work more than 40 hours per week and do not meet any of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) exemption criteria. Under the FLSA, whether an employee is entitled to overtime is based upon the employee's job duties - not their job title and not whether they are salaried or hourly.
For example, if you do not supervise two or more employees every day or do not make independent decisions in performing your job duties you may be entitled to overtime. In other words, if you are only doing what you are being told to do you could be entitled to overtime.
