115. They have exempt and non-exempt salaried employees
In Delaware, the company I worked for had all their employees salaried


There were non-exempt employees who worked 40 hrs/wk and got overtime pay


exempt employees who were exempt from overtime pay.
(supposedly, they got paid an amount that compensated them for overtime every now and then.)

This always seemed stupid to me - to make a law that says a company can't work employees
16 hours a day - so you make it 8 hrs a day with overtime - and then you make a law that allows employers to classify people as "exempt" and you can work their butts 16 hours a day.
This doesn't make a bit of sense to me.
