Salaried Employees And Overtime Pay
Employers often abuse guidelines regarding executive, administrative and professional exemptions. They often wrongfully classify employees as exempt to avoid paying overtime wages. Many employees, from managers and supervisors to administrative personnel as well as nurses, doctors and other professionals, are not properly classified as exempt from overtime, but are treated as exempt either intentionally to avoid the payment of overtime or because their employer does not understand the law.

Are You Eligible For Overtime Pay?
Contrary to popular belief, it is not your title or how you are paid that determines whether you are properly classified as exempt from overtime. Many employees carrying the title of manager or supervisor, although salaried, may and often are entitled to overtime under California labor law. At Gigliotti & Gigliotti, we are intimately familiar with the California laws governing exempt employees. We can help you identify whether you should be classified as exempt or whether you are entitled to overtime and other benefits.
Certain professional employees, although salaried, are also entitled to overtime pay. Call 800-560-1081 to determine your status as an exempt employee.
