Exempt vs. Non Exempt - What's The Difference?

In this episode’s Question of the Day, we focus on Exempt vs. Non Exempt employees, what’s the difference, and what does that mean to you and your business.

In this episode, we chat about who is and isn’t eligible for overtime, and how figuring that out can be a bit complicated.

In our Happening Around the Nation segment we take a look at:

  • San Francisco’s new CEO Tax law


  • New York’s expansion of the WARN Act (or Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act) requirements


  • A temporary state of flexibility from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (otherwise know as ICE), on completing the Form I-9 Authorization to Work in the US
