Are your non-exempt and exempt employees properly classified? An exempt employee is someone who is paid on a salary basis and whose job description and actual job duties exempt them from the Fair Labor Standards Act requirement of receiving overtime.

Be sure that you truly understand exempt versus non-exempt classification. If you have any employees who are improperly classified, your business could face audits, fines, and penalties from the government and/or claims against your business from the improperly classified employee.

If you have questions on whether an employee should be classified as non-exempt or exempt, please let me know and I would be happy to work with you to ensure that all of your employees are properly classified.
