  • Establishing hours for Salaried employees Massachusetts Maryland

    Can an ER establish a minimum amount of hours that a salary EE is required to work over 40 hours?

    Salaried or hourly, exempt or nonexempt, makes no difference. Yes, the employer may. "Salaried" (by which "exempt" is referred to by most people) does not mean you get to set your own hours.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      The ONLY significance that 40 hours has is that for non-exempt employees, that's where overtime kicks in. It has NO significance for exempt employees. You can require whatever hours you want.
      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.
