Corporate title

From ArticleWorld

Corporate titles in the 21st century do not necessarily comport with the job function actually being undertaken by the person with a particular designation. Indeed, corporate titles can be given to people for a whole host of reasons, including to honor them. With that said, the intent behind corporate titles is to delineate and identify the job functions performed by different members of a corporate organization.

Classification of corporate employees

There are different classifications of corporate employees in this day and age. The two most common classes of corporate employees are exempt and non- exempt.

An exempt employee is one that is exempted from the provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act in the United States. The generally applies to corporate employees who draw a salary and earn in excess of $23, 660 per year.

A non-exempt employee in most instances is one that is paid an hourly wage. Such an employee is subject to the provisions (and protections) of the Fair Labor Standards Act in the United States. (There are similar pieces of legislation in other countries around the world.) One of the major benefits of being a non-exempt employee under the FLSA is the fact that such an employee is entitled to pay at the rate of time and half over regular wages for time worked in excess of forty hours in a given week.
