FLSA Status

What Is FLSA Status?

An employee’s FLSA status is whether that employee is classified as exempt or nonexempt according to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). An employee who is nonexempt is entitled to receive overtime pay after they work a certain number of hours, while exempt employees are not eligible for overtime. For more information, please see our definition of “exempt vs. nonexempt Status”.
