Defining Exempt Employees, Nonexempt Employees and Contractors

It used to be easy to classify employees and to structure and manage personnel policies including compensation plans. But as companies strive to compete in dynamic markets, new ways of labor utilization have developed.

Job sharing, flex time and new forms of compensation can benefit both employer and employee, but they can present traps for employers who are not careful. Misclassification of employees as exempt or as independent contractors can have major financial consequences. The law in this area requires the employer, not the employee, to prove the classification as an exempt employee or as an independent contractor if challenged in litigation. The wise employer will review employment classifications on a regular basis to ensure compliance with California and federal wage and hour laws.

Caietti Law Group, APC, has extensive experience in representing employees and employers in claims made under California wage and hour laws including issues involving the classification of exempt v. nonexempt employees and the use of independent contractors. The firm stays on top of the changes taking place in California wage and hour law and uses this knowledge to advise and consult with employers to insure compliance with the wage and hour laws while maintaining a productive workplace.
