Kansas Exempt Employees: What you need to know

Under Kansas's overtime law, an employer must pay each employee overtime in the amount of 11/2 times the employee's regular rate for hours worked in excess of 46 in a workweek (KS Stat. Sec. 44-1204). Because the federal law is more generous to employees and offers overtime pay after 40 hours in a workweek, the state law applies only to employers and employees who are not covered by the federal law. Neither state nor federal law requires overtime pay for hours worked in excess of 8 per day or on weekends or holidays.
Kansas law exempts anyone employed in a bona fide executive, administrative, professional, or outside sales capacity from overtime pay requirements. Because the salary level requirement under Kansas regulations is $155 ($170 for professionals) per week, the higher federal salary threshold test will apply in every instance in Kansas (KS Admin. Regs. Sec. 49-30-1).
