  • Fluctuating North Carolina

    I work for a small company based in MD , we install and repair register
    systems. About 1 year ago they changed to a fluctuating workweek ...
    paying salary and 1/2 payrate for OT. After complaints they changed some
    "key" employees, including myself, to a straight rate for OT.We where
    told not to tell other employees. The work we do is definately not
    "white collar" and involves alot of physical labor, for installs this
    would be 70% of the job. Recently they have started a new policy of
    requiring us to submit leave slips in advance for weekends we will not
    be able to work. They will then decide,when the weekend in question
    rolls around, if they will charge us vacation days for being off,
    acccording to whether they say that they wanted us to work that
    weekend.We normally work Monday-Friday but there are some occations we
    are required to travel or start a job on Sunday. We seldom know before
    Friday afternoon if we are to work Sunday. I haven't been able to locate
    any blogs addressing fluctuating workweek and am trying to find out if these practices
    are legal.

    thanks for your help
