Managers are always salary exempt and are not eligible for overtime pay. This is a common belief but it simply isn’t true. In fact, your job title has nothing to do with how you have to be paid–it’s all about your job responsibilities. Steak ‘N Shake found out the hard way that they had misclassified 286 store managers in the St. Louis area and owed them back overtime pay. Oh, and attorney fees and costs. Grand total? million dollars. Steak ‘N Shake’s error.
