Explanation:
na koje se ne primjenjuju odredbe Zakona o pravičnim radnim standardima) i zaposleni sa nadnicom na sat (na koje se primenjuju odredbe ovog zakona)
The Fair Labor Standards Act was enacted on June 25, 1938, …. The FLSA set the minimum wage (at 25 cents and hour), established the work week at 40 hours, ordered time and one-half for overtime, and dictated much needed changes in child labor laws. It did not mandate break or meal periods, nor did it force employers to give holidays or vacations to employees.
The FLSA set criteria for which employees would come under the Act and which would be exempt from the provisions, hence "nonexempt" and "exempt." Those who were not exempt received overtime for hours worked over 40 in a week. Generally...very generally...managers and supervisory personnel and outside sales people are exempt, while "clerical" employees and manual laborers are nonexempt.
There is a common misconception that an employee who is paid a salary (as opposed to hourly wages) is automatically exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act and is not eligible for overtime. Even under the revisions of 2004, this is not true.
