The FLSA is the federal Law that governs minimum wage, overtime, compensatory time, and break time for nursing mothers. Who is covered? Most paraprofessionals employed by school districts qualify as non-exempt employees and are entitled to overtime and/or compensatory time benefits. If you are paid on an hourly basis and earn less than $23,660 per year or $455 per week, you most likely qualify. Categories covered include, but are not limited to: teaching assistants, cafeteria workers, custodians, office clerks, and bus drivers. Employees in salaried, administrative or executive positions usually do not qualify for overtime pay.
