    Salary hours vs hourly employee
    Is there a difference between the hours that a salary employee works?
    Hourly is from 8-9 and salary is 40 hours (does not matter what time frame)?

    As far as I know there is no restriction as to when an hourly or salaried employee can work at least in Virginia there isn't. Where I work we have both salaried and hourly employees doing the same job and our shifts run 24 by 7 so there is always at least one salaried and hourly employee working 24 7.

    Kimmy39, you really should ask your question for your own thread and not interject your question in someone else's question. That is called hijacking the thread. Just in case you were not aware of that.

    I'm interested in this question, also. Is there a 'limited' amount of hours to an employee working salary to where the employer would need to compensate either by overtime pay or comp-time?

    It depends on whether the employee is exempt or non exempt according to the FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act).

    It the employee is exempt salaried than hours do not factor into the equation and there is no limit on hours. The reason being that the salaried exempt employee is not paid by the hour but rather by the job performed. Thus hours are not considered. The salaried exempt is paid a flat annual rate for the job at hand broken down into pay periods. The salary is not in any way based on hours worked.

    In a simple equation if I pay a salaried exempt employee to do the bookkeeping for my company and I tell the employee for doing the bookkeeping for my company you will receive a salary of 60,000 a year. Now I pay biweekly so you will receive it 26 times a year or 2307.69 each pay period.

    Okay giving that senerio if the employee spends 40 hours a week or 60 hours a week that employee will receive 2307.69 a pay period. That employee could spend 30 hours one week and 56 another week and each payperiod will still receive the salary of 2307.69.

    You can check out the FLSA exemptions at the US department of labor site for the FLSA Act at elaws - Fair Labor Standards Act Advisor.

    Let me know if you have any questions.
