  • Salary Pay Texas

    I agreed to work for my employer for 14 days a month for an agreed monthly salary of $6000.00. If for some reason I had to fill in for another salary employee working at the same pay and schedule would I be entitled to compensation for extra days I work?

    Do you have a contract that states 14 days pay exactly for $6000?
    If not and you are exempt and salaried, your hours and days can change according to your empoyer's needs for you to be there.

    Let me know if you have further questions.

      Salary Employee Texas

      Actually I work a week on duty and week off. I get paid 26 times a year which equals to the $6000. a month. There is no contract with my employer. Each pay day is calculated at $6000. times 12 divided by 26. So, if I am called into work on my week off should I be compensated. All other Employees are paid for the actual days and hours worked, only supervisors are being told they still have to work on their days off for the same pay as
      shown above. You asked if I was exempt, meaning what?

        Exempt means an employee who is "exempt from overtime."
        New regulations went into effect Aug. 23, 2004 which I can direct you to a site to look over, but if you are nowhere near going over 40 hours in a week, then it won't apply to you.

        The amount of days you work when salarid can vary according to the employer's needs of you and no further compensation is required unless you have a contract which states otherwise.

        If you are not exempt and you work more than 40 hours in one work week period, then you are at least entitled to overtime pay.
