so, the not for profit I volunteer for as HR has finally done the correct thing and changed classifications of an employee from salaried exempt to salaried non-exempt. We calculate in her room and board to bring up her salary to well above minimum wage (I understand that we COULD NOT do this when whe was salaried exempt - which she never should have been anyway - didn't meet the criteria).

Anyway, question being posed is if (and my point is she SHOULD NOT HAVE OT - job doesnt require that many hours in a week), she works more than 40 hours per week, how do we calculate her overtime - is is stratight minimum wage for hours over 40, or do we have to use the rate that she actually is paid before we calculate in her room and board (she is given a house and we pay for water and phone)

Thanks!
