I was hired as a salaried employee, based on 40 hrs per week; no contract signed, just a verbal agreement. During July and Aug this year I'm being cut to 20 hrs per week at an hourly pay rate of $6.00 per hr less than my "salary" rate. Then in Sept I'm being bumped back up to 40 hrs per week, at the salary rate. However during 6 months of the year, when I'm on "salary", I actually work 43 hrs per week, but my check only shows payment based on 40 hrs. Can an employer legally do this sort of thing?
