I work for a company which operates out of Maryland and Pennsylvania. I cannot find any specific guidelines about salaried employees pertinent to my question: I am not a contracted employee, but am considered 'salaried'. My minimum required hours are 45 per week, and of course I am not paid any overtime, although my typical week turns into 60 hours or more due to the nature of the two businesses I manage. Over the summer we had staffing issues and there were days where I worked 24 hours straight. It was not until last week that I had my first day off since July. I was recently given a nominal salary increase, but I barely see it on my check. While I was working these insane hours, my supervisor agreed to comp time when the dust settled to make up for some of the days I did not get off over the summer. Of course I am now having trouble getting the company to honor this or even answer my inquiries. I do not otherwise have a bone to pick with my company, but I'm starting feel used and abused - is this all legal since I'm 'salaried'?
