How do I determine if I am non-exempt or exempt?

I am a full-time, salaried employee at a 501(c)3 organization in Florida. I do not have a supervisory role. I make 34k/year. Where can I find my classification as to whether I am an exempt or non-exempt employee? I am having an issue to PTO allotment that I would like to get cleared up: My non-profit employer requires me to work outside of my regular 40-hour workweek for special events in exchange for PTO. However, the PTO is not allocated at a 1:1 ratio. For example, I was required to work 10 hours outside of my normal 40 hour work week this weekend, but I was only allocated 5 hours of PTO. If I am non-exempt, I am under the impression, that this is not fair nor legal. However, if I am exempt, then my employer can allocate PTO as they see fit. Please advise. Thank you!

You will need to speak with counsel to go into greater detail as to what your job duties are to determine your proper legal status. You can turn to some of the DOL Fact Sheets to attempt it on your own, but not the best way to proceed. Best of luck.
