Which Employees Are Entitled to Overtime Pay?

In Texas, the question of which employees are entitled to overtime pay is a significant aspect of employment law. Despite the clear mandates set by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), it is not uncommon for businesses to misclassify employees or manipulate work hours to circumvent these regulations. Such practices are not only unfair but also a violation of legal standards. If you are unsure about your eligibility for overtime pay or suspect that your role has been misclassified to deny you overtime wages, it is essential to seek legal guidance.

Which Employees Are Entitled to Overtime Pay?

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets the standard for wages and hours worked, establishing that employees must receive overtime pay of at least one and a half times their regular pay rate for hours worked beyond 40 in a workweek. However, not all employees fall under these provisions. The FLSA provides specific exemptions, categorizing certain types of employees as “exempt” from overtime requirements based on their job duties, salary level, and salary basis. 

Typically, these exemptions apply to employees in executive, administrative, professional, computer, and outside sales positions. It is important to note that job titles do not determine exempt status. Instead, an employee’s specific job duties and salary must meet all the requirements set forth by the Department of Labor.
