    Sorry it wasn't what you wanted to hear but no federal or state law governs what tasks an employer may assign an employee to perform with the exception of those which require a license of some kind. Hanging TVs does not. It would be legal to fire you for refusing to do so.

    Even if you were non-exempt, you could be fired for not folllowing a directive from your boss. At most, you would have to be paid for that time, even if it was not part of your usual job. Employers dictate the duties, not employees. As a practical matter there are always going to be duties that come up which do not fall within anyone's typical job or must be performed when the person who usually does the task is out. If employees were free to decide for themselves not to do anything they didn't feel should be part of their job, there are lots of things which would never get done.

    Refusing to follow an order from your manager is deemed insubordination, whether you are exempt or non-exempt.

    We all have "other duties as assigned" in our job descriptions.

    Unless your new job is now hanging TVs, the fact that your boss asked you to perform this task recently does not make you non-exempt. All exempt employees perform some tasks which if they were the primary duties of the job would make them non-exempt.

    Yes, you can be placed on call on weekends, even if that was not required when you first started. Even if you were non-exempt it is quite possible you would not have to be paid for the time spent on call. As an exempt employee, it is never required.
