  • salary and hours South Carolina

    Started a new job that is salary. I was never given set hours but it was understood that it was an 8 hour work day five days a week. After 2 months, my employer is now stating I am required to work 5 am-7pm 5 days a week. I have not been getting an compensation for the time and have been told I will be docked if I take hours off to make up the difference. What are the laws in this situation?

    Salaried is only a pay method and means nothing by itself. Are you exempt or non-exempt?
    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.

      OP, until we know the answer to cbg's question, we can't really help with your original query.
      I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

        And as an attorney, it would behoove you, vsenthil22, to keep your canned responses up to date. The Federal minimum wage law has been raised twice since the amount you have posted. And by the way, Federal law does not require any breaks.

        I've allowed other attorneys to have a link to their web pages in their signature, so for now I'm leaving yours alone. But if your canned paragraphs continue to have incorrect information in them, I will begin deleting them since inaccurate info adds nothing to the discussion and canned paragraphs are not helpful to the poster. We are not here to be used as free advertising.
