Anyone who provides services for a company.
An employee is anyone who is paid for providing their services or goods to your employer.

Anyone who performs services for your company is your employee if you can control what will be done and how it will be done.
6. Eligible employees must be paid overtime at a rate of:
1.5 times the employee’s regular rate of pay for each hour worked in a workweek in excess of the company’s full-time schedule, often 37.5 or 40 hours.
1.5 times the employee’s regular rate except for national holidays which must be paid at 2 times the regular rate.
2 times the employee’s regular rate of pay if they work more than 80 hours every two weeks. This is to discourage employers from scheduling employees for excess hours because the risk of injury and burnout significantly increase with the number of hours worked.
1.5 times the employee’s regular rate of pay for each hour worked in a workweek in excess of 40 hours.
