Can my employer make me sign an agreement that my job is overtime exempt, even if it is clearly not?

Steve Duggan replies:

Such an agreement would clearly be invalid, if the duties of the position do not qualify for one of the exemptions to overtime payment under the FLSA or your state’s labor laws. You should consult with an employment attorney about your rights under state and federal law.
