What determines if an employee falls within one of the white collar exemptions?
The Fair Labor Standard Act sets the floor for minimum wage, overtime, child labor and recordkeeping requirements for employers. Typically, it requires companies to have a half million dollars in gross income, and there are some entities that are automatically covered by the FLSA. While the FLSA sets the floor, the state you are in may have heightened requirements and those requirements are what your company should be in compliance with. This video reviews overtime pay and what white collar employees must have to qualify for exemption of FLSA overtime regulations.
