    i have been working at a retail store for 7 years, 20 years in this field,I have a new boss. I work 63 hours aweek, I leave at 11pm, if the night shift doesn't do what I tell them to, she has me come in and fix it I usually am there for 5 more hours. I'm told I will get a phone call if the store is not acceptable. Is this legal ? I'm salary, by choice I hardley ever take a break and called in only once when I got married 17 years ago!

    Are you the manager of the store? I'm only asking relative to pay issues. It is not illegal to require that you come back and "fix stuff" if necessary, no matter how many hours it generally takes.

        Doesn't make any difference whether you're "hourly" or "salaried"; those are terms relating to the pay method only. CT may have some restrictions on the number of days/hours for retail employees, but basically, for general occupations, there are none.

        I still want to talk to you a little more about your "salary" though, but I have to go to work now. I'll be back later.

          Regardless of your pay method, the maximum number of hours you can be required to work is 168.
          The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

            Kathie, talk to me a little about how your "salary" works. I think you may be due overtime pay that you're not getting.
