When Are You Entitled To Overtime?
If you work more than 40 hours a week, you may be entitled to overtime even though:
- You are paid a salary;
- You are called a Manager; or
- You are paid as an independent contractor.
Why Are Employees Misclassified?
Federal and state law protects employees, and guarantees non-exempt employees payment of overtime and the required state wages. Even if you are called a “salaried employee” or a “contractor” or “manager”, you may be entitled to overtime. It is not your job title, but your job duties that determines if you are owed overtime.
Some employers misclassify employees as “salaried” or “independent contractors” simply because it saves them money. Money that belongs to their hardworking employees.
