  • Iowa does not have an overtime law. However, it does provide exemptions from its minimum wage.
  • There are minimum wage exemptions for executives, administrators, professionals and outside salespersons. See Executive Employees, Administrative Employees, Professional Employees and Outside Salespersons.
  • When Iowa's exemption requirements diverge from those of the Fair Labor Standards Act, an employer must comply with whichever requirements are most favorable to their employees.
