  • Indiana's minimum wage and overtime requirements apply only to certain employers. See Employer Coverage.
  • Indiana's minimum wage and overtime exemptions are different from those under the FLSA. One of the most significant differences is that the executive, administrative and professional exemptions all require the employee to have the authority to hire or fire.
