My question involves employment and labor law for the state of: Missouri
I was curious if anyone had information about unpaid overtime for non-exempt employees who are salaried and have worked past the typical 40 hours a week schedule for about 6 years. The reason I ask is because I was a operations (assistant) manager for a retail establishment who received salary pay for only 40 hours of work per week when I lived in Missouri.
The company most likely believes the position entails exempt status under this regulation;Source: http://www.allbusiness.com/governmen...ons/808-1.html"managers who hire and fire employees and who spend less than half their time performing the same duties as their employees are typically also exempt employees."
However the store is a smaller establishment and typically (on a daily basis) managers and employees do the same duties. Managers do more than 80% of working as hourly associates and roughly 10-20% performing management duties.
Therefore I believe my position was non-exempt (with proof) and I would like to know if there is a statue of limitations on recovering unpaid overtime.
