Salary vs. Hourly

It is legal to pay different people differently (salary vs. hourly) for doing the same job. If the position is exempt from overtime, then the salaried employees may not be entitled to 1 1/2 pay over 40 hours, but the hourly employees would be regardless of whether it is an exempt position. However, if the position is non-exempt, then even the salaried employees would be entitled to overtime. If you think you are entitled to overtime I would be happy to speak with you to determine if you have a case (312) 782-3550.
