"What is the Difference Between Exempt and Non-Exempt Employees?"

Employment laws are incredibly complicated because there is no definitive set of laws. While there are standards set by the government, each state has it’s own rules and regulations.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) provides an outline of what employees should expect in terms of pay and working hours. It states that employers are required to classify whether a role is exempt or non-exempt.

Depending on the classification, you will either be entitled to overtime pay or not. But regardless of exempt or non-exempt, there is a minimum wage that employers must meet, which is $7.25 per hour.

Factors that determine whether you are exempt or non exempt are:

- How much money you earn

- The type of work you do

- The responsibilities and duties of the job role
