Misclassification of employees as exempt from overtime is a common violation of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and Kentucky's wages and overtime law; such violations have produced numerous prior suits: Cable Installer Claims Was Misclassified as Independent Contractor Sues for Overtime, Misclassified Tech Workers Settle Overtime Suit for $1.45 Million, Store Managers at Harbor Freight Sue for Unpaid Overtime are only a few examples.
