employee/limited owners exempt from labor laws?
I have a small business startup LLC and have several limited partners who are employees. It’s a food business in San Diego. Are they exempt from the labor rules? Meaning I as the 85% majority partner am likely exempt from overtime and can be salary, etc… are my small share partners exempt as well?
Congrats on starting a food business in San Diego! Without more information, It would be irresponsible of me to give a quick answer so I’ll refer you to some sources instead. In a nutshell, if you and your employees are paid salary and have exempt status, then you might not have to pay overtime. But no one is exempt from the labor rules. I would have to know their job titles/roles, responsibilities to determine whether they qualify for the exempt status. Here are some helpful resources:
