Managers And Overtime

Adding the word "Manager" to your business card doesn't give your employer the right to expect you to work long hours without paying your overtime. Under California and federal law, in fact, there are very specific responsibilities and authority that must be conferred on an employee before he or she can be called an executive and classified as exempt from overtime rules.

If your Southern California employer has misclassified you as a manager and is violating your rights under state and federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) regarding overtime pay, call an employment lawyer at The Emge Firm, LLP, in San Diego.

The attorneys on our team each have more than 15 years of experience fighting aggressively on behalf of workers who are facing violations of their workplace rights. We will review the circumstances of your case and pursue a fair settlement to help you protect yourself from losing the pay you deserve.

FLSA Criteria For Being A Salaried Executive Manager

  • You must be paid on salary, with a minimum of $455 per week
  • Your responsibilities must include managing a department or subdivision of the business
  • You must regularly supervise or direct the work of at least two or more other full-time employees
  • Your employer must confer the authority to hire or terminate (fire) other employees under your direction, or be involved in the termination, hiring or promotion of employees in your department
