Almost all restaurant workers in Kentucky are not exempt from overtime. A few restaurant workers in Kentucky, however, are exempt from overtime, but those are only the very few restaurant employees that work at a restaurant with less than $95,000 in sales for the five preceding years. This exclusion is found at 803 Kentucky Administrative Regulation 1075 Section 3.  

So, a very few restaurant workers in Kentucky are exempt from overtime pay requirements but nearly all are not; almost all restaurant workers in Kentucky must be paid overtime if they work more than 40 hours in a workweek.
