    Salaried Job

    I have a friend that works for salaried job (40 hours a week). She has to work nights and weekends (every now and then) in addition to normal 8-5 work time. Can you work for more than 40 under salaried position? Can she get the comp time for extra hours that she worked? Any experts out there with HR law stuff?

    Thanks!

    Re: Salaried Job

    My understanding is that fulltime is not limited to 40 hours a week. She needs to know whether her position is exempt or non-exempt to see whether she qualifies for comp or overtime.

    Re: Salaried Job

    It depends on the amount of money they are making and the occupation.

    Re: Salaried Job

    Depends on the company. A lot of companies do not pay salaried positions overtime.

    Where I work, Techs get paid overtime (time and a half), E.I.T.s get paid just their hourly rate for the extra time they work, and P.E.'s do not get paid any overtime and are expected to work more than 40 hours a week.

    Also, you only get paid for your hours that are billable, so if you worked 60 hours but 20 was on a proposal or something non-billable, you would not get paid any overtime.

    Its a tough work world out there. In modern day America, we work more hours and get the least amount of paid time off of any modern-day developed country in history.

    Re: Salaried Job

    There is a minimum amount a salaried person must make per year by law if they work over 40 hours, Otherwise 24-7 is the limit. Anything else must be negotiated.

    Re: Salaried Job

    She should address this question to her HR department. This summer I was salaried non-exempt. My manager allowed comp time as long as you were here at least half the day on Friday. However, there were a few weeks when I put in 45+ and never asked for the time off. I just had to put the time in to get the job done.

    Re: Salaried Job

    I think the "reward" for being salaried is generally higher earning potential.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: Salaried Job

    Let me know what you find out. I'm salaried and usually work about 50 hours a week and I don't get any comp time.

    The short answer is that unless she is an a job with unusual circumstances, she is most likely not owed any comp time for her weekend work. Its highly unlikely!

    Re: Salaried Job

    Salaried, any OT I work goes into my PTO which can be used or paid out at year end. Been salaried before where the OT worked was not compensated.

    Keep in mind (varies by company) that often salaried employees can take up to a half day off without using their PTO.

    Read this:

    Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) Coverage (Exempt vs. Non-Exempt -- The Online Wages, Hours and Overtime Pay Resource

    It explains exempt vs nonexempt status in detail.

    Varies by job, but it's likely just expected that she work overtime when necessary without further compensation.

    Re: Salaried Job

    On a personal side, she has to see whether the others do the same thing without additional compensation/time off just to make sure she doesn't look "unusual" among her peers. Make sure she doesn't cross the boss.

    In my case, I have to work more than 40 hours in a week almost every week, but that's something I have to do: sometimes you need to work more than 40 hours/week and that's fine with me.

    Re: Salaried Job

    I wouldn't ask and here is why.

    #1 If they were going to pay you for overtime you would have already been offered it.

    #2 Some companies use this to see how hard you are going to work and you'll get rewarded later. After college I worked for Hy-Vee in a salaried position and my per hour wage ended up being terrible. At the time I was 22 and it didn't hurt me working 50-60 hours a week. it was good experience and made me appreciate all of my other jobs. This is just standard practice that everyone at Hy-Vee has to go through before they get to be a store director. You can short change this process a little by being a minority or a woman.

    #3 Other companies just suck and work people to death for little money. You can usually see how well they treat their employees by the quality of their employees. No use in getting extra money from these types of companies.

    #4 Some places will pay you a lot of money and it's just expected that you work a lot of overtime. This should have been brought up during the hiring process.

    #5 In this type of market maybe the company is just trying to run on a skeleton crew and it will change as the economy picks up.

    In history? Really? I bet you can go back 40 years and no country in the world averaged as much vacation time as we have now.

    I agree that we get less vacation time than other countries but as far as compensation we do pretty well.
