Jack, you are talking out of your ass now.

https://www.dol.gov/whd/overtime_pay.htm

The federal overtime provisions are contained in the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Unless exempt, employees covered by the Act must receive overtime pay for hours worked over 40 in a workweek at a rate not less than time and one-half their regular rates of pay.”

I'm glad you had the energy to look it up. I've about had it.

So if you saw a fellow coworker smoking weed outside on his break you would go rat him out? 

I don't think that legality and morality are equivalent. I don't think weed is immoral, and it would completely depend on the job. Can other people get hurt if this guy is high? If the answer is no, I'd let it go.

No offense, but I very much doubt that.

There's no such thing as "exempt" employees. That's a lie that your boss tells you so they can steal your money without fear of being sued. Too many people buy it. 

Are you serious? This is absurd.

I'm not going to go there. There were a few things. I've actually never ripped my previous employers publicly for anything, and I wouldn't do that anyway. I'm not afraid to tell it to people's face though. 

And there is nothing wrong with this. I've had jobs at clinics I quit because they were committing Medicare fraud. This is a truly illegal and unethical thing clinics shouldn't do. I turned them into the state. The state did nothing about it but I wouldnt work there again anyway.

As a heart attack. There might be actually an exemption for this but the person should be in the top 10% of salaried earners in order to reach that. Anything else is just abuse of the law.

I already proved that ridiculous statement wrong.

What is the salary threshold for being exempt then? I'd hope it's well over $100k.

I am posting it again just for you to see, Jack.  Salary exemptions from required overtime pay exist, Jack.  This is straight from the U.S. Department of Labor website.

https://www.dol.gov/whd/overtime_pay.htm

The federal overtime provisions are contained in the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Unless exempt, employees covered by the Act must receive overtime pay for hours worked over 40 in a workweek at a rate not less than time and one-half their regular rates of pay.”

LOL, same difference dude.

The problem is Jack has a huge ego and it’s his own undoing.  He just literally called tens of millions of Americans dumb over something he is 100% in the wrong about.  He’s the “dick” from his original post in this thread and actually thinks that’s an acceptable way to act in an corporate setting.  Being an arrogant know it all isn’t going to fly in most positions, especially entry level ones.

Regular workers?  You have no idea what we do, lol.  Some people that post on here could be 5 figures, 6 figures, or perhaps even 7.

The minimum salary is somewhere around 47k I think.

That's true, but I'd guess it applies to most.

That's $22/hr over 40 hour weeks I believe. Much better than the minimum wage.

$22/hr isn't that much. The minimum wage as it currently exists is absurdly low.

You tell us.  You just claimed we’re all entitled to overtime!  

Funny I I don’t see billboards with lawyers advertising their ability to get people their entitled overtime pay.  I guess lawyers just don’t like money anymore!
