Are Agency employees considered Exempt or Non-Exempt. And does this classification apply across the board, i.e., can some agency people be considered Exempt while other agency people are considered Non-Exempt?

Hey Har Har,
You blah blah blah blah .. yadah yadah.
BS over real truth.
The fact is that Ford is a great company and we are going to be here for a real long time, oh maybe a hundred years or so. Get your head around that. A hundred plus years. Be Proud of working at Ford!

The new skills are the old skills in many cases.
The SRD are employed by companies who Ford then pays handsomely for the same people whose “skills were not needed” to do the work they were doing for much more than they were paid while at Ford. Twist of fate is they no longer care about the outcome and do precisely what is asked and nothing more. They will stretch the contract indefinitely as the Ford supervisors are clueless.
You only get paid if you are expemptional!
Benefit is the new skills they bring to Ford and Ford can manage as needed. Most are limited to 40 hours max per week.
All agency are hourly in Ford’s eyes. Ford pays an hourly wage by contract.
However, some agency are salaried employees of their contracting firm. For example, Broadcom, IBM, BMC, Oracle etc. The Ford relationship with the contracting firm is hourly. The contractor relationship with their contracting firm is salaried. This is why you see some agency “working” at two or more companies simultaneously. One agency bills Ford for 40-50 hours a week and simultaneously bills two other companies for 40+ hours a week. Now the guy isn’t working 150 hours a week, he is working at most 50 hours a week. The contracting firm is making out as he is salaried, he is making out as his base salary is 180K.
Ask your agency. I don't know for certain, but I suspect Ford is paying them for each hour you bill.
