What are the federal guidelines for non-exempt employees?


Answer by  patti (29325)

The Fair Labor Standards Act provides, for example, that non-exempt employees are eligible for overtime. The law provides very specific definitions of all terms. If you have specific questions, contact the Labor and Wage Board in your area for details and accurate information regarding any concerns you may have. You might also review the FLSA, which is available online.

Non-exempt employees must be paid for time worked and overtime over 40 hours. They are assumed to be low skill or moderately skilled, not professionals.


Answer by  1cinbrew (31)

Non-exempt employees are workers that are paid hourly versus exempt workers which are salaried. These employees are also eligible for overtime pay equal to one and half times their hourly wage for any time worked over a normal forty hour work week.


Answer by  Chaneygirl (1755)

They are due overtime for anything over 40 hours worked in a week, no requirement for breaks/meals, time off is not required. Individual states may have different rules.

General guidelines, for legal purposes are generalized to white-collar workers who earn more than $455 a week, employees who perform "exempt" administrative positions who make over $100K a year, and most sales professionals.

Listen to your boss, respect your co workers, and respect yourself. Treat customers as you want to be treated. No nonsense on the job and dress appropriate for your work.
