If an employee is paid a salary, are they exempt from overtime and record-keeping requirements?
Salary alone will not dictate whether or not an employee is considered exempt or non-exempt. The employer will have to consider a number of other factors, including the job descriptions and actual job duties of the employee. So the fact that the employee is paid a salary isn’t in and of itself going to make that determination. The employer’s gonna want to keep track of the records for anybody that they’re not absolutely sure is exempt and meets all the conditions. And they’re always gonna want to keep track of the necessary records that they’re required to keep under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
