Are store managers exempt from overtime in Kentucky?

The job title of "store manager" and being paid a salary does not mean that the employee is exempt from overtime in Kentucky.  Whether a "store manager" is exempt from overtime is determined by whether or not the actual job duties are more manual than managerial.  This means that the question must be answered depending on the facts of the individual situation.

As a further illustration, Dollar General store managers were awarded some $35 million of unpaid overtime in Morgan v. Dollar General Family Stores.  This case is discussed by Robert Abell at the Kentucky Employment Law Blog: Overtime Case Yields $35 Million To Dollar General Store Managers.
