Exempt vs. non-exempt as defined by the FLSA

The US federal law, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) has been enacted for establishing the following:

  • Minimum wage
  • Overtime pay eligibility
  • Recordkeeping
  • Child labor standards.

It covers both full-time and part-time workers who work in federal, state, and local governments, as well as the private sector. The FLSA brings under its ambit all the kinds of employees that it classifies as part-time or fulltime under its mandatory provisions.

Classification of employees is important for determining exempt and nonexempt

The FLSA makes some categories of those employees who meet its definition of fulltime employees eligible for overtime and for compensation for working over and above the standard 40 working week hours. The rate of compensation, which is to be not less than one-and-a-half times their regular pay, is determined on the pay rate and the position the employee is in.

A core component of the FLSA rules relating to overtime work and pay is who is an exempt employee and who is not. That is, some kinds of employees are exempt from overtime pay. The FLSA has provisions for determining which employees are exempt and which are not exempt for overtime pay. Making the wrong classification of who is exempt and who is nonexempt can result in legal problems for the organization.

HR and payroll professionals need to keep a host of regulations in mind if they have to be in compliance with regulatory requirements that relate to exempt and nonexempt employees.

Understanding the FLSA exempt and nonexempt rules is important

The rules pertaining to exempt vs. nonexempt overtime pay will be the topic of a highly educative webinar that is being organized by TrainHR, a leading provider of professional trainings for the areas of human resources.

Dayna Reum, who works as the Payroll Tax Manager at PetSmart Inc., and has been heavily involved in the payroll field over 15 years, will be the speaker at this webinar.
