Nonexempt Employee Definition

The Fair Labor Standards Act rules, such as the minimum wage provision and the overtime pay provision, apply to nonexempt employees.

Nonexempt Employee Extended Definition
A nonexempt employee must be paid at least the minimum wage and receive overtime pay for hours worked beyond 40 in a workweek.

The exempt status depends upon the duties the employee performs. If the employee’s duties change, so can their exempt status.
