What does being “exempt” mean under the Fair Labor Standards Act is a question often asked by employers. The topic is confusing and employers make potentially costly mistakes in how they classify employees. With new requirements becoming effective January of 2020, it is essential that each employer understands what it means to be classified as an exempt employee. It is not as simple as the method you use to pay people. It is a matter of how you pay, how much you pay and whether the employee is performing the right job functions.
