    Hi SMBuddy46,

    "Are you entitled to overtime?
    By Jane Howard-Martin, special for USATODAY.com
    Employees generally fall into two categories: hourly and salaried. When it comes to overtime, many employers assume salaried employees are exempt from overtime requirements. But unless certain requirements are met, salaried employees may be entitled to overtime, just like hourly employees.

    Employers are not required to provide overtime pay for workers who are classified as "exempt." This means an employee is not subject to either a state's labor code or the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) rules for overtime. "
