​Questions & Answers​

Q: What is the difference between non-exempt and exempt employees?
A: The terms "exempt" and "non-exempt" are defined under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Non-exempt employees are paid by the hour and are subject to minimum wage and overtime provisions of the FLSA. Exempt employees are paid a salary, not by the hour, and cannot receive overtime pay. "Exempt" is not a title, but a legal classification based largely on job content.

Q: Are PRN positions included in annual salary planning?
A: Yes, PRNs participate in annual performance reviews and are included in the annual salary planning process.

Q: What determines my salary increase amount?
A: Market conditions, budget parameters and individual performance determine salary increases.
