Who is entitled to overtime compensation?

Employees who are covered by the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act or the Minnesota FLSA and are not otherwise exempt from overtime provisions are entitled to overtime pay at one-and-a-half times their regular pay for hours they worked in excess of 40 or 45 hours per workweek.

Salaried employees can be eligible for overtime, if they are nonexempt.  Nonexempt employees are entitled to overtime for any hours exceeding the 40-hour work week, regardless of how they are paid.  If you are unsure whether a certain employee is exempt or nonexempt, we can advise you.
