Exempt or nonexempt? Court weighs in on question of the day


SKU: ELBja161. Category: .


Abstract: In a case involving the FLSA, the Fourth Circuit court considered whether a registered nurse, who said that she was not an exempt employee, was owed overtime pay by her employer. This article summarizes the case and discusses the concept of “exempt.” It also explains what employers can learn from the case’s outcome. A sidebar discusses a Seventh Circuit case in which an employee asserted that she was paid a salary so that her employer could claim an exemption from overtime. Williams v. Genex Services, LLC, No. MJG-13-1942, September 4, 2014 (4th Cir.) Klein v. Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center, No. 92-1933, March 29, 1993 (7th Cir.)
