Bill 368 goes up for public hearing tomorrow at the Guam Legislature in Hagatna. The measure as introduced by Senator Bob Klitzkie (R) would conform the local wage and hour law to mirror those laws utilized by the federal government. According to the senator the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act identifies particular employees as exempt from receiving overtime. "An exempt employee is an executive employee, an administrative employee or an outside salesmen or a professional employee - those are exempt employees they don't receive time-and-a-half for work over forty hours in a seven-day period," Klitzkie explained.

The senator says that if his bill is passed into law it will better define what kind of employees on Guam should be exempt from receiving overtime pay.
