What are the laws for an hourly versus a salary employee?


Answer by  Turkwork (1150)

One difference is the number of hours you work and how you are paid. Hourly employees generally get some sort of overtime after working forty hours and salaried employees do not get overtime. Benefits such as vacation and leave are also handled differently for salaried and hourly employees.

An hourly employee gets paid for the time that he is at work, including overtime if they work extra hours. A Salaried employee gets paid a straight wage, no matter how many hours they work. Sometimes, it works out in your favor, and sometimes, you end up working more that 40 hours without being paid overtime.

Generally, an hourly employee must be paid overtime premium for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek (established consecutive 7-day period). Salaried employees may also be eligible for overtime. EXEMPT employees may be paid a straight salary, regarless of how many or how few hours are worked during the workweek. To qualify as exempt, specific standards/tests must be met.
