Parttime vs. Fulltime Employment Benefits, Laws, & More

1. As an employer, you must be familiar with overtime laws. Are you required to pay full-time and part-time employees for overtime hours? As a brief recap, overtime pay depends on whether you consider an employee exempt or nonexempt. An exempt employee is paid on a salary basis, makes at least $35,568 per year, and has higher levels of work responsibilities. Do not pay exempt employees overtime wages. A nonexempt employee receives hourly or salary wages, is paid at least the federal minimum wage, and has fewer responsibilities. You must pay nonexempt employees overtime for any hours worked over 40 during the week. Many part-time employees are classified as nonexempt and are eligible for overtime.
