Exempt Vs. NonExempt

Anonymous - Jul 17, 2018
Back to Ask the Experts

We are trying to understand best practice with a position we’re posting in regards to Exempt vs. Nonexempt and FLSA. The position is a Talent Acquisition Coordinator/HR Admin. This position is the entry point for our company – it’ll be the lowest level position at the company (private, DOD contractor). The role is complex because it’ll be supporting both talent acquisition and HR administration. The salary range will actually be in the mid – upper $50k’s. While it is the entry point in the company, this individual will support multiple HR functions. There are currently no other roles at that level in the company. Should it be exempt or nonexempt?
