Employee classification can be confusing! The term “employee classification” can refer to a few different categories. It could be a determination of whether the individual is an “employee” or an “independent contractor.” It might refer to whether they are full-time or part-time, depending on the number of hours they work in a week. It also might be a determination of whether they are an exempt or non-exempt employee. Let’s dive into what exempt and non-exempt employee classifications mean.
