Do I qualify for overtime pay as a subcontractor?

I am employed by a recruiting company (The Precisionists) that has a contract with another company (Vertex Inc.) that I currently am working for. I believe that makes me a subcontractor, but I am not doing manual labor so I'm unsure if that is the correct term to use. My job duties at Vertex Inc. revolve around tax filing and other financial tasks all done on the computer. Do I qualify for overtime pay if I work over 40 hours in a week?

Unless exempt from the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act, the employer must pay employees an overtime premium for all hours worked in excess of 40 per week. Executives, professionals and administrators may be subject to the exemptions. You should consult an attorney if you have questions about the application of the exemptions.
