Who is Exempt from Overtime?
Certain employees are exempt from overtime. Among these are managers and supervisors, those working in certain professional fields, contract employees, and anyone making more than $100,000 yearly.
In some cases, employers will classify an employee as “exempt” based on one of these criteria even when the employee is not truly qualified as exempt under Labor Department regulations. If you suspect your employer has engaged in illegal activity, such as reclassifying your position, in an attempt to avoid paying you a fair wage, we can help.
We know the rules and regulations set forth by the Labor Department. We are prepared to hold unscrupulous employers accountable and have the resources to take your case as far as needed to help ensure the most preferable outcomes.
Contract employees are not eligible for overtime pay unless overtime has been written into their contracts. However, contract employees retain the right to set their own hours and can stop working before they cross the 40-hour mark. Being cheated out of wages promised through contract employment is another issue entirely, but also one that our Denver employment attorneys can help with. If you are a victim of any type of wage theft, call us today to schedule a free consultation and learn how we can help.
