Alaska Exempt Personnel: What you need to know

Alaska law requires employers to pay employees overtime (11/2 times their regular rate of pay) if they work over 40 hours in a week or 8 hours in a day.
Individuals employed in a bona fide administrative, executive, and professional capacity who pass the duties tests are exempt from the overtime provisions of the law (AK Stat. Sec. 23.10.055).

In Alaska, working in a bona fide executive, administrative, professional, or outside sales capacity has the same meaning as the duties tests under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The salary threshold for overtime exemption in Alaska in 2021 is $827.20 per week ($43,014.40 annually). Apply federal duties requirements if covered by both state and federal law.
