Speech therapists may be entitled to overtime pay depending on whether they meet the requirements for an exemption, such as “learned professional” or the executive exemption if the therapist is performing professional therapist duties and is paid on either a salary basis or a fee basis, he or she may meet the requirements for the professional exemption. If the speech therapist is paid on an hourly basis, then overtime rules may apply. This is very similar to overtime pay requirements for a registered nurse.
