Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
The state of FL really does not define who an employer can make a salary employee. There are federal guidelines that an employer must meet IF they decide to make an employee a salary employee. The federal rules are that the employee must make at least $24,600 per year and must be a supervisory employee, a professional employee (one requiring a special license), a purely administrative employee or a computer IT professional.
So, in order for an employer to choose to make an employee salary, they must fit into one of those categories and must make that minimum salary.
If an employee is truly a salary employee, then they can be made to work as many hours as the employer requires to do their jobs WITHOUT any overtime.
