Can an employee be Exempt and hourly? Currently I work for a private company in Houston, TX as an Director of Nursing - Case Manager, I get paid hourly, but don't get paid overtime. Can anyone please advise? Thank you

  • If you do not get paid for overtime, why do you work overtime?

This Dept. of Labor page indicates that executive, administrative and professional employees are in the exempt category, and the corresponding regulation 29 CFR §541.200 agrees, as long as you make at least $684 per week on a fee basis or salary basis. Since apparently your pay depends on the number of hours that you work, you are not an exempt employee
