Am I an Exempt employee and therefore not entitled to overtime?
I was told by my boss that the reason I don't get overtime is because I am an "Exempt Employee". What does this mean? Is this legal?
It really depends on how long you have been there and what you do in the company. There isn't a lot of information from your question. What do you do at your company? is it a salaried position or hourly?
I get paid by the hour.I work in the mailroom of my company. It's a pretty decent sized company. I don't even know if I'm the only one not getting overtime, but I know I'm not getting any now.
It seems like you should be receiving overtime. Exempt employees are usually managers or high skill positions that are excluded from overtime rules. and if your working in a larger business, you should be non-exempt. I would bring it up with your HR department if you have one, or maybe even contact a lawyer.
