It's possible, but not at all certain.  The answer will depend on more detailed facts about your job duties.  You should discuss this with a qualified employment and labor attorney, and one place to look for one is our website,

Typically, an exempt salaried employee is one who has managerial or supervisory responsibilities, or professional skills, as the major part of the job, and there are so many variations in the way people's jobs are set up that it's hard to give a good general answer.  At the same time, in this economy businesses are looking for ways to cut costs, and reducing overtime by calling more employees "exempt" is one that's being seen more often.  The employer doesn't get the last word on this!
