A: By using the term "exempt," I assume you mean exempt from overtime. The analysis of whether an employee is exempt from overtime is very complicated and usually depends on job responsibilities, not the title of your job. I would suggest you contact a lawyer who specializes in employment law and discuss the details of your being classified as "exempt" by your employer. If you are mis-classified, you may be able to re-coup damages for any overtime you worked in the past five years.
