Time-and-a-half compensation must be paid to all non-exempt employees who work overtime, and martial arts instructors are generally entitled to this premium pay when working more than 40 hours a week. To be ineligible to receive overtime pay, an employee must earn an annual salary of at least $23,600 and perform the job duties of an exempt employee. Federal overtime law divides exempt job duties into three categoriesexecutive, administrative, and professional. Martial arts instructors who do not fall into one of these categories or are not paid a salary of at least $23,600 per year are entitled to overtime pay.
