The executive, administrative, professional, outside sales, and computer employee exemptions from overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act do not apply to employees training for employment in an executive, administrative, professional, outside
sales, or computer employee capacity who are not actually performing the duties of an executive, administrative, professional, outside sales, or computer employee. Therefore, if you are paying trainees, they are entitled to overtime pay. However, not all trainees are considered employees under the FLSA.

The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has a six-part test to guide the determination of whether a trainee is in fact an employee under the FLSA. If all the following criteria apply, the trainees or students are not employees within the meaning of the Act:

Overtime policy (standard)
On June 30, 2015, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) with the long-awaited proposed changes to the overtime rules. In this first round, the proposed rule does not include changes to the duties tests used to determine if a position is exempt from the minimum wage and overtime rules. There are, however, major changes to the minimum salary threshold for the "white collar" administrative, professional and executive exemptions, and for the highly compensated employee exemptions. Use this calculator to determine and understand the impact of the proposed salary threshold for OT exemptions and to calculate the impact of the proposed salary threshold for highly compensated employees (HCEs).
