A newly-hired manager is telling salaried employees that they have to work 45 hours a week, take designated lunch breaks and set daily hours. If employees miss time, they have to make it up. Does this make all employees non-exempt?
In the past, being salaried/exempt meant employees had flexibility. As long as they put in over 40 hours per week, the timing of their daily arrivals and departures didn’t matter. Aren’t salaried employees paid for the job, rather the hours? Employees are coming to me, an HR manager, with their concerns, but the manager won’t budge. What should I do?
