Overtime For 'Assistant Managers'
President Obama signs Executive Order on Pay for "Assistant Managers"
Earlier this month, President Obama signed an Executive Order instructing the Secretary of Labor to update regulations regarding who qualifies for overtime protection. Ross Law Group congratulates our Lead Overtime Investigator, who was invited to attend the signing ceremony at the White House.
The Fair Labor Standards Act is designed to protect workers in America -- more than 135 million workers in over 7 million workplaces nationwide. The Texas overtime lawyers at Ross Law Group help workers get the overtime pay they are entitled to under the law.
The updated regulations are expected to include an increase in the minimum salary. Assistant Managers who are not paid the minimum salary are eligible for overtime pay when they work more than 40 hours a week. The changes could help millions of people working as Assistant Managers to get fair pay when they work overtime.
What regulations can't fix are employers who misclassify employees as management to take unfair advantage of the executive exemption. We frequently see this in retail, convenience stores, and restaurants.
Signs that you may be misclassified as exempt include:
--You do not direct the work of at least two other full time employees or regularly perform management duties; or,
--You do the same work as the people you supervise and your pay is about the same as theirs; or,
--You are "on salary" but your pay is less than $455 a week or reduced when you take time off.
If you have worked more than 40 hours a week as an Assistant Manager, Shift Leader, or Team Leader, you may be eligible for overtime pay.
