  • overtime - SC ? South Carolina

    I am currently employed as a salaried manager for a big isurance company located in South Carolina. I have been working Monday - Friday, 40 hrs a week, and also 6 hours on Saturday for a total of 46 hours a week. Sometimes we are required to work more hours than 46 if our inventory is bad.
    The company does not pay me more for working those extra hours and does not give me any comp time. They state they don't do this because I am an exempt employee. Is this legal? Shouldn't the company have to do one or the other?

    No, there is no requirement for a non-government employer to give comp time to legitimately exempt employees and such employees do not need to be paid extra for working more than 40 hours in a work week.

      Agreed. "Exempt" means exempt from paid overtime. You can find the rules at:

        I think the OP was fishing for comp time. Not required.
