In the field of overtime law, administrative exemption is one of the most common mistakes employers make. By classifying someone as a salaried employee, many companies are under the mistaken belief that under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) that is all that is needed for an exemption status under FLSA. Frequently, workers who are FLSA nonexempt do not have the benefit of talking to a lawyer to determine if they are entitled to overtime.
