Misclassification of Employees in Missouri and Kansas
Our Attorneys Lead Misclassification of Employees Lawsuits and Secure Compensation
Are you classified as a manager, but routinely required to perform the same tasks as the people you manage? In most cases, “exempt” employees should not have similar job duties to “nonexempt” employees.
In some cases, employers will classify employees as managers or exempt employees simply to avoid paying them overtime. At Holman Schiavone, LLC, we represent and advocate for employees in disputes over misclassification, and we are one of the leading law firms doing so in Missouri and Kansas. If you believe you have a claim, we will help you explore your legal options.

Exempt and Nonexempt Employees — Are You Misclassified?
If you have been classified as a manager, you rightly should expect to perform the duties of a manager — making decisions and overseeing the work of employees working under you. If you are classified as a manager and your primary duties consist of stocking shelves, ringing up cash registers and similar tasks, you may have a misclassification claim.
Since managers can be classified as “exempt,” or not eligible for overtime, employers will give some employees the title of manager simply to avoid paying overtime. If you are an exempt employee being required to perform the duties of a nonexempt employee, our attorneys are here to stand up for your rights.
