details of being Salary / "exempt" employee ???? : LUSENET : Law Of The Workplace : One Thread

My employeer has asked me to start to log all work done after hours as well as clock in and out each time I leave and enter the building. As I understand that being a Salary employee makes me "excempt" from having to do any of this..... correct?? I just want to make sure I am covered by State Law if this escalates and my job becomes at stake. Thank you for your help..

true but they are asking me to track my After hours works as well. That is the point if I am exempt then they can ask me to track my after hours work. If they do request this log and I don't produce it I will loose my job?? I think that this falls under two different situations... and they will have to pay all the back hours if they ask me track them, and I do not. They will let me go and then it becomes a whistleblower case, if I understand the law correctly..

I believe it means that you work 40 hours a week and you are exempt from any overtime. Which means if you work overtime, you don't get paid
