#YourEconomy - Share your story

Are you restricted from overtime pay? Share your story

March 12, 2014: 9:25 AM ET

CNNMoney's #YourEconomy series moves beyond the numbers to look at the people who make up our economy.

Do you regularly work more than 40 hours a week without overtime? If you're a salary employee earning at least $455 a week (about $23,660 a year), the current overtime rules may not apply if you work in one of the following job roles: executive, administrative, professional and outside sales employees, and even certain computer and "creative professional" jobs.

Employers can abuse this exemption by classifying workers in one of those job roles even if they really aren't. President Obama plans to ask the Labor Department to change some of those rules on Thursday.

Do you feel you've been unfairly excluded from the overtime laws? Share your story with our reporters using the form below and you could be featured in an upcoming CNNMoney article. Your name and comments will not be published without your permission. If we plan to follow up on your submission, we'll contact you.
