It is important to ensure that jobs are appropriately categorized as either Exempt Status positions or Non-Exempt Status positions. The Fair Labor Standards Act’s (FLSA) Exempt Status applies to employees who meet specific exemption criteria delineated in the Act. Exempt employees are typically salaried and are paid for the job performed rather than the number of hours of labor. Exempt Status employees are not eligible for overtime pay.
