What is a Salaried Employee?

A salaried employee is a worker who is paid a fixed annual salary, rather than an hourly wage. Salaried employees typically receive the same amount of pay each pay period, regardless of the number of hours worked, although some salaried positions may include overtime pay for hours worked over a certain threshold.

Salaried employees often have more stability and predictability in their income, and are typically exempt from overtime pay requirements under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). They may also be eligible for benefits such as health insurance, paid time off, and retirement plans, which are often based on the salary.

Salaried positions are common in management, administrative, and professional roles, and typically require a higher level of education, experience, and expertise than hourly positions. Salaried employees may be expected to work longer hours and have more responsibilities, such as decision-making and problem-solving, than hourly employees.

It is important for employers to classify employees correctly as salaried or hourly, as misclassification can result in legal and financial consequences, such as failure to pay overtime or provide benefits. Additionally, employers should ensure that salaried employees are exempt from overtime pay under the FLSA, by meeting the requirements for a white-collar exemption.
