Exempt/non-exempt status is a legal determination, based on applicable federal and state law and factors including the nature of the work, the specific job duties and responsibilities, and level/form of compensation. Non-exempt employees are typically paid by the hour for each hour worked during a pay period, and receive overtime pay in accordance with applicable overtime rules.
