Q. Can part-time employees be salaried? — JMDG, New Jersey

A. Yes, under the Fair Labor Standards Act, part-timers can be paid a salary and considered exempt from overtime. Of course, it is unusual for part-timers to work enough hours to earn overtime. However, if the job duties allow him to be classified as overtime-exempt, there’s certainly no problem with working part time.
