Am I entitled to overtime even though I am a salary employee?

I work for a manufacturing company that does not pay any of us overtime. At one point they were giving us only comp. time that had restrictions on it. I am in Quality and work with my hands all day. They require me to come in almost every Saturday without paying any overtime.

Overtime entitlement does not depend on the label that a manufacturer or employer puts on the position. Calling a job salaried does not end the inquiry. If the job is covered and non-exempt under the FLSA you are entitled to overtime. There are specific problems that have to be looked at before this is fully evaluated.

If you want to discuss this potential case, call me at 216.382.2500
