“Exempt” or “Non-Exempt”

The question of Exempt vs. Non-Exempt employee ties in with the misconception regarding salaried employees. Many employers tell their employees that they are exempt because they are paid a salary. Again, this is not true. Generally, exempt employees do have to be paid a salary, but the mere payment of a salary does not make the employee exempt. Similarly, the mere title of “Assistant Manager” or some similar job title does not make an employee exempt. If you are classified by your employer as exempt, but you do not have the authority to hire or fire employees on behalf of your employer, then there is a good possibility you may in fact not be exempt and may be entitled to overtime pay.
