      Exempt vs Non-Exempt

      When someone refers to "exempt", they are refering to a person who is exempt from coverage under the Fair Labor Standards Act. "Non-exempt" is a position covered by the Act.

      An exempt person is not entitled to overtime and is paid a salary. The reason is that the law views those persons as being paid for their responsibilities, rather than for the hours that they are working.

      Non-exempt positions are eligible for overtime, meal and rest periods (with the latter two depending on state law).

      Not just any position can be exempt. Positions that are purported to be exempt must fit into one of several categories and must meet several "tests" regarding the salary level and the responsibilities and duties expected of the person.

      The US Department of Labor just issued new rules regarding exemption that are effective today.

      This can be a very complex topic. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
