I was recently hired by a small business in Florida with about 30 people. I was told I was managment and would be a salaried employee. I was also told I would be expected to work a 50 hour week although if its not busy it may be closer to 40. I never received an official offer of employment so I don't technically know what my rights are in this situation as far as when they have to pay me or don't have to.
Some salaried employees in the company work 40 hours per week and if they go over 42 hours they can "bank" time if they have prior approval. I however am also salaried but cannot "bank" any time until after I go over 50 hours per week.
I asked for Monday and Tuesday off of this week and they are reducing my pay for that, even though I am trying to make up the time and have worked 4 extra hours so far, they say that is what is expected of management employees.
I am still required to punch in and out, the whole situation seems a bit odd but perhaps I was wrong for not insisting on a more clear written explanation of what is expected.
