The law splits most employees into two groups - Exempt or Nonexempt. If you are a "Nonexempt" employee and work over 40 hours in a week, you are normally entitled to overtime pay.
Overtime work is hypothetically, paid at time and a half of your regular rate of pay. Anything over 40 hours should get paid time and a half.
The Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") is the federal law governing the compensation of minimum wage and overtime payments. As a rule, the FLSA requires an employer to pay an employee overtime payment for all "hours worked" in excess of 40 hours in a workweek, unless that employee is "Exempt" from the law.
Employers will often tell employees that they can get "comp time" if they put in an extensive week. Most people think that just because they are compensated a salary, they are exempt and not entitled to overtime. This is not true at all. Being paid a salary is NOT the same as being exempt.
For overtime purposes, employees are either "exempt" or "nonexempt." Nonexempt employees are entitled to overtime pay. Exempt employees are not.
Generally, whether you are "exempt" or "nonexempt" depends on two comprehensive principles. To be "exempt," both of the next criteria must be met:
1. The employee must be paid a salary (not hourly),
2. The employee must perform the duties of an exempt employee.
An employee who is paid on an hourly basis is "nonexempt" no matter what kind of work that person does (except for doctors, lawyers, and teachers).
An employee who is paid a salary is still "nonexempt" unless s/he also performs exempt job duties.
These duties fall into three categories: Executive, Administrative and Professional.

Chapter 13 Closing Case

...Business 650: Managerial Finance Week 5 Assignment: Chapter 13 Closing Case February 25, 2013 1. What implications do you draw from the graph for mutual fund investors? The investor should consider the AMEF have only beaten the Vanguard 500 Index Fund twice in the last twenty years (1986, 1987). The graph is also indicating an up and down trend, perhaps reflecting the state of the economy during that time. It is a possibility that AMEF will continue its upward rise in the next five to ten years. “Despite the relative simplicity, mutual-fund investors are still making costly mistakes that are eating into their returns” (Dagher). Making a significant investment based only on the cyclical nature indicated by the graph might not be the best financial idea for the investor. There are other factors to consider besides the information that the graph is providing. In comparison, fees are very low for the Vanguard 500 and it has been in existence much longer, making it practical to study its track record (Ross). However, it would be wise to analyze what those low fees are exactly. Looking at them over the course of one year they might not seem significant but how much do they accumulate during a ten year return? 2. Is the graph consistent or inconsistent with market efficiency? Explain carefully No. The objective of investing in the stock market is to have the best available return on investment. Many investors claim that they can outperform the...

Closing Case 13

...Closing Case: Chapter 13 Bonnie Jordan Managerial Finance Instructor: Kristi Rayford March 11, 2013 The Closing Case in Chapter 13 focuses on options for a 401K for an employee of the East Coast Yacht Company. Several decisions must be made regarding investments, which will be highlighted in this discussion. Equity investments can go into the S & P 500 or an index related option. The former has lower fees, and the latter higher ones. Other elements to be discussed include the aforementioned investment options, graph implications regarding mutual fund investors, market efficiency, and an equity investment decision to be made by the East Coast Yacht employee. The East Coast Yacht company’s finance representative, Dan Ervin, made several comments based on the percentage graph for 10-year return for the Vanguard 500 Index Fund (Ross, et all 2011). Based on this data compiled over two decades, there is a cycle in effect. The numbers (equity mutual funds outperformed the Vanguard 500) swing from almost 70% down to mostly just about 20% and then swing back up to almost 50% (Ross, et all 2011). Perhaps investing in the S & P 500 index would be timely as the trend is leaning towards other fund investments. The three forms of market efficiency per Andrei Shleifer as Ross, et all (2011) posits, “(are) rationality, independent deviations from rationality, and arbitrage, (p. 399 – 400).” Also, an efficient capital market is one as Ross et all (2011)......

Zara Case- Closing Statement

...ZARA CLOSING STATEMENT What is Strategy? Michael Porter states that companies must be flexible to rapidly to competitive and market changes. They must benchmark continuously to achieve best practices. A company can outperform rivals if they can establish differences they can preserve. It must deliver greater valuable to customers to create comparable value at lower costs, or do both. Competitive strategy is about being different it means deliberately choosing a different set of activities to deliver a unique mix of value. Furthermore, Porter believes that the desire to grow has the most perverse effect on strategy. Tradeoffs and limits appear to constraint growth. Serving one group of customers and excluding others, for instance places a real limit on revenue growth. Differentiators lose sale to price sensitive customers. Managers are constantly tempted to take incremental steps that surpass those limits but blur a company's strategic position. eventually pressure to grow, or apparent saturation of the target market lead to managers to broaden the position by imitating competitors and making acquisitions. Compromises and inconsistencies in the pursuit of growth will erode the competitive a company had with its original varieties or target customers. Too often, efforts to grow blur uniqueness, create compromises, reduce fit, and ultimately undermine competitive advantage. The growth imperative is hazardous to strategy. For example, based on its successful experience in...

Dred Scott Case Closing Arguements

...The Closing Argument for the Petitioner Dred Scott I shall summarize my legal case history such that all can remember the details and gain a better understanding of my case. My name is Dred Scott, I was born a slave in Virginia around 1800. I was bought by Peter Blow and worked on the family farm until 1819. The Blow family moved to St. Louis, Missouri and opened up a boarding house called the Jefferson Hotel. Peter Blow rented out my services to the river boats on the Mississippi River. In 1832, I was subsequently sold to an army surgeon, Dr. John Emerson for five hundred dollars. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Emerson went to live at Fort Armstrong in Illinois. Illinois was a free state and did not allow slavery. Three years later, Dr. Emerson was transferred to Fort Snelling on the Mississippi River in the Wisconsin Territory, again another slave free territory. During this time, Dr. Emerson purchased a female slave named Harriet Robinson. We fell in love, considered ourselves married and eventually had four children. Following a short period at Fort Jessup in Louisiana, Dr. Emerson returned to St. Louis with his wife Irene and my family. In December 1843, Dr. Emerson died and bequeathed my family and me to his wife. After the death of Dr. Emerson, I tried to purchase my families freedom from the widow Mrs. Emerson. When she refused to sell our freedom, I filed a lawsuit for our family’s freedom. On April 6, 1846, the lawsuit was filed where I claimed that I should be given my...

Closing Case: Starbucks

...chapter 4 Closing Case: Starbucks In 2006, Starbucks’, the ubiquitous coffee retailer, closed a decade of astounding financial performance. Sales had increased from $697 million to $7.8 billion and net profits from $36 million to $540 million. In 2006, Starbucks’ was earning a return on invested capital of 25.5%, which was impressive by any measure, and the company was forecasted to continue growing earnings and maintain high profits through to the end of the decade. How did this come about? Thirty years ago Starbucks was a single store in Seattle’s Pike Place Market selling premium roasted coffee. Today it is a global roaster and retailer of coffee with more than 12,000 retail stores, some 3,000 of which are to be found in 40 countries outside the United States. Starbucks Corporation set out on its current course in the 1980s when the company’s director of marketing, Howard Schultz, came back from a trip to Italy enchanted with the Italian coffeehouse experience. Schultz, who later became CEO, persuaded the company’s owners to experiment with the coffeehouse format—and the Starbucks experience was born. Schultz’s basic insight was that people lacked a “third place” between home and work where they could have their own personal time out, meet with friends, relax, and have a sense of gathering. The business model that evolved out of this was to sell the company’s own premium roasted coffee, along with freshly brewed espresso-style coffee beverages, a variety of...

Denver Health did create security measures to ensure that only the proper people can access the information. Doctor’s and nurses when they first arrive to work they sign on by inserting a smart card which contains that doctors or nurses credentials, once the smart card is inserted the end user still also has to supply their login and password. The help ensures that if a card is lost or stolen a random person or a different doctor or nurse is not able to use and look at other patient information. 2. Columbia College could put in place something similar to what Denver Health did. In this type of solution it could be a one stop shop for both students and faculty for anything that is Columbia College related. Both students and faculty could use it for quick access to student records. As a student I could then see if what classes are open, if any are available to audit, etc. all from the thin client. It would also allow for the faculty to have greater manageability. 3. The public cloud could be an option for Denver Health’s business continuity planning.

Case Managers

...The primary responsibility of a Case Manager is to coordinate a service which is in connection with the client’s needs. Familiarizing yourself with community resources helps case workers to develop skills that are necessary to know. Case managers should be aware of the services available in their own area and what’s offered throughout the State. It is the Case Manager’s Clients assessment of needs and the ability to locate or provide the appropriate resources that can begin the process of assisting with improving the individual’s quality of life and the client’s independence within the community. It’s so many organizations and professionals available that can meet an individual’s specific needs. However, the client and sometimes the client’s family’s often become confused and unsure where to seek the best programs for them. It is the Case Manager’s responsibility to assist the client in obtaining these benefits or services whether it’s short term or long term. First of all, a good rapport and positive working relationship should be established between the Case Manager, client and service providers to ensure an effective outcome. A Case Manager should be knowledgeable about the various services available for their client, with doing so makes the process easier as well as the access. Formal referrals submitted by the Case Manager to other government agencies or to community service organizations are usually more effective than the client themselves trying to seek help. The...

Every year when football season ends, coaches get fired and new coaches get hired. And because every team needs a head coach, there is precisely one job at each team and that job has to be filled—quickly. Consider the National Football League. Every team wants to make the playoffs, so that becomes the critical measure of success. The day after the regular season ends is known as Black Monday, and most firings take place that day or a few days after. Of course, not all teams failing to make the playoffs fire their coach. Sometimes a team has a long history of success, and one bad year is considered an aberration. In other cases, a team is in the midst of rebuilding, so expectations are low to begin with. At the end of the 2013 season, seven head coaches were fired. So where are new head coaches found? Some come from a pool of former head coaches who were previously fired but are still considered viable prospects. For example, in early 2014, the Detroit Lions hired Jim Caldwell as their coach. Caldwell had been fired......

Counting Seconds Measured - Closing Case

...Case: Counting Seconds, Measuring Scans Company Summary Meijer is a family owned business that was founded in 1934. This company is one of the largest private companies operating 203 big stores in the Midwest, including Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. Their corporate headquarters is located in Michigan. The company was named no. 19 in 2015 in Forbes Magazine. Their sales in 2014 were $15.75 billion. The company has a combination of grocery and general products for consumers to purchase. Meijer stocks about 120,000 items which is comparable to Wal-Mart’s product stock. Today brothers Hank and Doug Meijer, grandsons to the founder still run the company. Facts * Private owned business doesn’t have to answer to shareholders to make decisions * Too many products to manage and validate pricing * Revenue Focused eliminates customer service with the new performance program * Low pay scale and physically demanding job which attracts employment from people from the lower class neighborhoods which can lead to high turnover rate and lack of understanding in what it takes to run a business Issues Some primary issues are that the company has 76,000 employees to manage. This can remove the personal experience between the manager and the employee. Employees need to feel important and in a company where there are too many employees, the turnover rate is high. Another primary issue is that management has to enforce the company programs with......

Apple Closing Case One

...Closing Case One - Apple—Merging Technology, Business, and Entertainment This might sound hard to believe, but a bit more than a decade ago, Apple was on the brink of bankruptcy. Apple Computer Inc., now back from near oblivion, is blazing a trail through the digital world with innovation and creativity that has been missing from the company for the past 20 years. The unique feature of Apple’s competitive advantages is that they come from customers and users, not Apple employees. That’s right; the company welcomes products created by consumers to sell to consumers, a trend new to business. Capitalizing on the iPod With millions of iPods in the hands of consumers, many people are finding ways to capitalize on the product. John Lin created a prototype of a remote control for the iPod and took his prototype to Macworld, where he found success. A few months later, Lin’s company had Apple’s blessing and a commitment for shelf space in its retail stores. “This is how Apple supports the iPod economy,” Lin said. In the iPod-dominated market, hundreds of companies have been inspired to develop more than 500 accessories—everything from rechargers for the car to $1,500 Fendi bags. Eric Tong, vice presi- dent at Belkin, a cable and peripheral manufacturer, believes that 75 percent of all iPod owners pur- chase at least one accessory—selling over 30 million accessories to date. With most of the products priced between $10 and $200, that puts the iPod...

International Business Closing Case 3

...International Business Closing case #3 Downey's Soup 1. Downey's Foods export opportunity was a result of strategy reactive. When they presented the dish to Jetro it was given to them with the regular recipe that was used in Downey's tavern. They changed the soup with the reduction of the salt content so it could comply with the local Japanese taste after it was requested by the buyer. They also had to make sure the soup did not have polysorbate which was not allowed in Japanese food. 2. Downey was frustrated because of the multiple attempts to change the contents in the soup to abide by the Japanese health and food regulations. It passed the lab in the United States but when it reached the lab in Japan it did not pass the requirements needed by Japans. The same tests were performed from the same shipment and different results were obtained from the American lab and Japanese lab. Downey may also want to work with other Japanese traders to increase sales. It is important to find a trader that has large confections to Japanese businesses that would be interested in the soup. He may also want to research the food wants and likes of Japan to prepare the correct flavor of soup that will bring success. 3. Marketing research must be done to understand the wants and needs of a country's market. Whether it be Japan or another country, research needs to be conducted on the steps that are needed or recommended to succeed in the entrance of international business. It is......

Closing Case-Ikea

...MGNT 3650 June 12, 2011 Chapter 1 Closing Case-IKEA How has the globalization of markets benefited IKEA? Globalization of markets has benefited IKEA by making it easy to expand into different countries. Now that the whole world has excess to the internet, everyone is basically wearing and listening to the same things. This is very beneficial to IKEA because there isn’t a lot the company has to do with the style they originally started in Sweden. With the globalization of markets it makes it easier for customers to buy products from IKEA online or at the warehouse with their country “social” demographics and culture in mind. “The worldwide success of a growing list of products that have become household names is evidence that consumers the worlds over, despite deep-rooted cultural differences, are becoming more and more alike - or, as the author puts it, "homogenized." In consequence, he contends, the traditional MNC's strategy of tailoring its products to the needs of multiple markets may put it at a severe disadvantage vis-a-vis competitors who apply marketing imagination to the task of developing advanced, functional, reliable standardized products, at the right price, on a global scale.” How has the globalization of production benefited IKEA? This has saved IKEA time and money. IKEA has producers to supply each of its big markets; it helps by knowing the styles of each market. For example the producer......
