    My Husband's Job

    TENNESSEE- MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN WORKING FOR A PRIVATELY OWNED RENTAL COMPANY FOR A FEW YEARS(+3), HE JUST RECEIVED A RAISE AFTER ALL OF THIS TIME. THE PROBLEM IS THIS, WHEN HE WAS HIRED, HE WAS PLACED ON "SALARY". WHAT I THOUGHT "SALARIED EMPLOYMENT" MEANT WAS IF HE WORKS 1-40+ HRS HE GETS PAID THE SAME AMOUNT. WELL, APPARENTLY I WAS WRONG. HE DOESN'T GET PAID THE DAYS HE DOESN'T WORK AND THE 6+ HOURS OF OVERTIME HE GETS PAID A WEEK IS ONLY BEING PAID AT HALF TIME INSTEAD OF TIME AND A HALF. IS THIS LEGAL? IT SEEMS LIKE HE'S PAYING THEM TO DO EXTRA WORK. THEY TRIED EXPLAINING IT AS "CHINESE TIME" BUT IS THAT LEGAL IN THE U.S !!!! WE REALLY NEED TO KNOW. ONE OF HIS COWORKS STATED THAT BECAUSE IT'S A PRIVATELY OWNED BUSSINESS HE HAS THE AUTHORITY TO PAY THAT WAY. IF ANYONE COULD GIVE ME SOME HELPFUL INFORMATION I WOULD GLADLY APPRECIATE IT.

    Nope. It's not legal. Your husband may contact your State's Department of Labor and file a complaint.

    (P.S. Please don't post in all caps. It's very hard to read.)
