Are certain types of jobs excluded from overtime pay lawsuits?

Yes, certain types of jobs are exempt—or excluded—from Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime laws. Some office workers may be considered exempt from overtime pay based on their job duties. However, specific criteria must be proven by employers, and many employees are intentionally or unintentionally misclassified as overtime exempt.

Professionals, like doctors and architects, may be excluded from receiving overtime. And transportation employees in the railroad, airline, truck driving, and taxicab industries could also be exempt from overtime.

If you believe your employer may be misclassifying you as an overtime exempt employee, don’t take your employer’s word for it. Employee misclassification is a widespread issue, and it could be costing you thousands. Contact Fair Share Lawyers to get the experienced help you deserve.
