Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) Designation
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) established a set of criteria to determine whether positions are exempt from overtime liability.  To comply with the law, the agency Human Resource (HR) section evaluates all positions for proper FLSA status.   
Read more information in the FLSA Designation Criteria Worksheets  and the FLSA Guide. These websites provide an explanation of factors to consider in determining FLSA status.  Also included are worksheets to test a position for appropriateness for Executive and Supervisory Exemption, Administrative Exemption, Professional Exemption, and Computer Exemption. If a position falls into one of these categories the position is considered exempt and is generally not eligible for overtime.  Conversely, if a position does not fall into one of these categories it is considered non-exempt and is eligible for overtime.  However, occasionally a collective bargaining agreement may allow overtime for an employee who is FLSA exempt.
