Are fire officers exempt from overtime because they are executive employees, or are they hourly wage earners? That question has perplexed fire departments, municipal officials, and the courts for decades. Even the Department of Labor’s efforts in 2004 to clarify things have done little to stem the tide. This program will take a close look at the law and the cases to explain why some officers are entitled to overtime and other are not.
