Overtime Exemptions Checklist (Federal) - Digital
An attorney-reviewed checklist to help businesses ensure that employees are properly classified as “exempt” or “non-exempt” from overtime pay under federal regulations.
Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and existing overtime regulations, employers are allowed to classify certain employees as “exempt” from overtime pay if they are paid on a salary basis, make a certain salary amount, and perform specific white-collar job duties. Misclassifying a worker as “exempt” when their salary and/or job duties do not qualify can result in lawsuits for unpaid overtime. According to previous U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) estimates, over 70% of employers are not fully compliant with wage and hour laws, including existing overtime exemption regulations. Non-compliance with overtime regulations can result in fines, back pay, front pay, loss of overtime exemptions, damages, and penalties.
Our digital, attorney-reviewed Overtime Exemption Checklist helps businesses determine whether a worker qualifies as “exempt” under the salary test and duties tests established by the federal FairPay Overtime Rules. Using this checklist can help employers avoid common misclassification errors that can result in costly overtime lawsuits.
