Why do I have to check the non-exempt workers' hours?

Asked 3 months ago

I am preparing to run my first payroll. I want to hire employees for my construction business. The company is still growing, and I have to hire a few hourly employees and some salaried employees to stay within budget for the first few months. All my employees will have set work hours regardless. Do I really have to check all the non-exempt workers' hours for the pay period?

Yes, you will need to check your non-exempt workers' hours, even though you set specific hours for them. You must ensure that they receive at least the federal minimum wage and overtime pay if they have worked over 40 hours in a week (or 8 hours in a day, depending on your state regulations).
