Instructions and Help about Are Form 8815 Exempt

Hi, I'm J Norman. I'm guessing that you found my video by typing in the "exempt employee definition" or something like that.

Additionally, the employee is not entitled to overtime payments. In addition to these payment issues, the employee also has to qualify based on job duties specified in the law that show the employment is at a management level. If you're trying to deal with the issue of exemption, consider downloading our free 51-page "hours of work" chapter from our HR Matters Tools and Resource Center library.

It also includes a section with extensive HR best practices in this area, as well as a section that delves deep into all the laws, rulings, regulations, and court cases that impact the topic of hours of work.
