Common Overtime Violation: Misclassifying Employees as Exempt

Common Overtime Violation - Misclassifying Employees as Exempt

One of the most common overtime violations falls under misclassifying employees as exempt.

Some common violations involving employee classification include:

– Classifying employees as exempt “managers” or “assistant managers” when their job duties are the same as the employees who supposedly report to them,
– Classifying employees as exempt under one of the white collar exemptions when their jobs don’t require discretion and independent judgment,
– Paying employees based on how many hours they work each week rather than paying them a true salary that doesn’t fluctuate based on hours worked or production
