Overtime Pay Exemptions by Profession

It is a common misconception that certain job titles or professions automatically exempt an employee from receiving overtime pay.  In truth, it is a person’s job duties and not his or her job title that determines whether that employee is exempt from overtime pay.  Based on our years of experience with overtime pay and wage and hour lawsuits, the lawyers at Phillips Dayes Law Firm have found that many employees who should receive overtime pay believe they are exempt.  If you work in one of the following professions and have not been paid overtime for hours worked in excess of a 40 hour work week, you could be entitled to back wages and compensation for additional damages.  If your profession is not on this list and you would like to know whether you are entitled to overtime pay, we encourage you to contact us so that an experienced member of our overtime lawyer team can review your circumstances to determine whether any laws have been violated.
