Who is exempt from Fair Labor Standards Act wage regulations?


Many workers in Michigan put in extra hours on the job with the understanding that they will receive overtime pay. Most of these workers understand that such payment is required under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act. However, some workers are exempted from these national overtime pay provisions. Every employee should check with an employer before accepting a job to determine whether the job is one of those that is exempt. In fact, this should be part of the process of looking closely at any job contract to find out what an employer expects and how and when the worker will be paid.
