Many people mistakenly believe that salaried workers are not entitled to overtime pay. However, whether or not salaried workers are owed overtime wages all depends on their job duties.
For example, retail managers are often salaried but perform the same duties as their hourly co-workers like cleaning the store and stocking shelves. Similarly, bank managers spend a lot of time performing customer service and working on the teller line. The same holds true in the restaurant industry where managers cook food, clean the restaurant, and serve customers. In these examples, if a salaried “manager” spends most of their time doing non-management work, they then may be owed overtime wages because their duties are not primarily management.
Over the last ten years, salaried workers have sued companies for overtime pay and recovered tens of millions of dollars in settlements and judgments.
