Paralegals are non-exempt under FLSA but surveys show that MOST are required to work more than 40 hours per week. While paralegals once performed mostly clerical tasks including filing, pulling cases off shelves and photocopying, today, paralegals often engage in tasks involving more sophisticated legal skills.

What are your thoughts? Are paralegals highly trained specialists and should be exempt under FLSA?
