If you’re a manager or supervisor who earns less than $500 weekly, odds are high that your employer has failed to pay everything it owes you.
Having a Title Like”Manager” or “Supervisor” Doesn’t Make You Ineligible for Overtime Pay
The reason? Because most workers earning less than that must be paid overtime regardless of title. Many employers label employees as “managers” or “supervisors” because they think doing so makes you ineligible for overtime. But that’s not how it works. If you earn less than $455 a week, you must be paid overtime regardless of your title. And if you earn more than that, you must still be paid overtime regardless of what you’re called if your employer can’t show that you fall within one of three strict exemptions.
