    employment contract
    I was reclassified as salary exempt by my employer, while other's were taken off salary and changed to hourly. I'm aware of the FSLA guidelines etc. The contract I signed was for 45 hours at a 'x' dollars. However, six months later I'm being scheduled for eleven hour days and told I have to work those hours [55] a week. I have received no further compensation for this nor was I asked to sign anything else. What recourse do I have?

    Hello notorious:

    If they are violating your contract, and they are, you need to sue them.

    Before I did that, however, I'd pay a visit to HR and ask them. Not only would I ask them about the contract, I'd ask them why you don't get time and a half for overtime.

    Be polite. If they don't answer your question to your satisfaction, the next step I'd take is send them a certified letter explaining that if they don't correct the defect in your contract, you'll sue them.

    If they DON'T correct it, sue them. You'll probably need the services of an attorney to do that.
