FLSA Overtime Exemptions

Marrero & Wydler represents companies and individuals in FLSA overtime claims. However, FLSA overtime laws do not apply to all employees. These employees are known as “exempt,” and will not receive overtime pay, even if they work more than forty hours a week.

Overtime work depends on the kind of work that is performed. Employees who are exempt from FLSA overtime requirements usually have significant responsibility within a company. An employee is not exempt simply because the employer says so or because the employer gives the title of manager.

The employment attorneys at Marrero & Wydler know the exemptions to the overtime payments and assist in determining whether an exemption is really an overtime violation and misclassification of the employee’s position. For example, there is an exemption for professional, administrative, and executive employees; union workers; personal attendants; and agricultural employees.

Overtime exemptions are a complex area of employment law. Marrero & Wydler  litigate overtime disputes for both companies and individuals. Call our office at (305) 446-5528.
