NELSON: A lot of employers mistakenly believe that it’s up to them which employees they pay wages to plus overtime, and which employees get set salaries. That’s actually something that’s defined by law, and employees need to meet certain criteria. [GRAPHIC: Overtime and Unpaid Wages – Employees who are misclassified and therefore paid set salaries can later sue their employers for the overtime they otherwise should have been paid.] They need to make a certain minimum amount of money; they need to do certain types of job duties. In California, they need to spend more than half of their work time doing these specific exempt job duties to qualify for white collar overtime exemption. If employees believe that they’re not getting paid overtime or wages that they’re owed, or they’re not receiving meal and rest breaks, you should definitely pick up the phone and give us a call. Wage and hour issues are highly technical. A lot of times they’re counterintuitive, and it’s essential to have a knowledgeable attorney help you with these situations when they arise.
