    Can I Take An Employee from Salary to only Hourly
    We have an employee who exhausts her salary pay by only getting less than lets say 32 hours or more sometimes a week. She is nonexempt and gets overtime for anything over 40 hours. She has assistance on the overtime and never does it alone. Can we change an employee from salary to hourly only.

    Well of course she is not a true salary if she is getting over time, by most of the standards I have worked under.

    But as one this has happened to in the past, unless there is a employee contract and unless there is a union, you may change someone's pay up, down, salary, and the such if you want to.

    Now on the situation if this job has several people doing it, all will have to change, you can change all of your supervisors back to hourly, not just one of them for example.

    But as a current salary employee, we are salary, we work for one amount, no matter if that is 30 hours or 60 hours. While the law on this may have changed, in fact when I worked for Ship and Shore as a salary employee, the fact I was required to keep track of my hours ( punch in and out) required them to pay me over time. We got a large back pay on that law suit.
