  • Salary Exempt Lots of OT Utah

    We have a commissioned sales team who are salaried exempt. The last 6 weeks of the year is our busiest time of the year (every year) so we need our sales team to work a lot of hours during this time...up to 12 hr days, 6 days each week. For salaried exempt in UT, is there a limit as to how many hours of OT we can ask them to work? Someone told me we couldn't ask them to work more than 50 hours/week...I'd never heard this before.

    That's because it isn't true.

    There are only two states that place any limits on the number of hours a non-exempt employee can be required to work, neither of which is Utah, and no state limits the number of hours an exempt employee can be required to work.

    BTW, "overtime" has no meaning with regards to exempt employees. Exempt employees are not paid on the basis of how many hours they work, so "overtime" is meaningless.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
