Non-Exempt Employee

Non-exempt employees are typically defined as those who are entitled to overtime pay in accordance with local labour laws in the UAE, GCC, and KSA. This includes most hourly workers as well as some salaried workers who do not meet certain exemptions, such as professionals or managers. For any hours worked outside of their regular working hours, non-exempt employees typically have the right to receive one and a half times their regular pay, up to a maximum number of hours per week.

Non-exempt employees must accurately record and pay for all hours worked, and failing to do so can have legal and financial repercussions. HR professionals are crucial in educating employees about their rights and responsibilities and ensuring that businesses adhere to local labour laws and regulations.
