Berger & Montague, P.C. is investigating potential class
action lawsuits on behalf of workers who have been reclassified

the Fair Labor Standards Act?
Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law that establishes
minimum wage, overtime pay eligibility, recordkeeping, and child

state, and local governments are entitled to overtime wages. The
FLSA defines "overtime" as working more than 40 hours per week.
However, there are "exemptions," or employees who do not qualify
for paid overtime. The following employees are considered exempt
under the FLSA:
- Executives: Anyone whose primary duty is to
manage a company or a department within a company
- Administrators: Anyone whose primary duty is
to manage general business operations
- Leaned Professionals: Anyone whose work
requires advanced knowledge in a particular field
- Creative Professionals: Anyone whose work
requires imagination and talent in a recognized artistic field
- Computer Professionals: Anyone employed as a
computer systems analyst, computer programmer, software engineer,
or other similar professions
- Sales Professionals: Anyone whose primary duty
is to make sales and is regularly engaged away from the office
- Highly Compensated Employees: Anyone who earns
$100,000 or more annually
