Thank you for the reply Adam. Let me add a bit more to the specifics and see if that helps shed light on the situation (coped from another reply):
I'm not a leader. That's my concern. I'm not a manger of anyone except myself.
Referencing the Exempt Jobs list for the FLSA, my duties do not fall within executive, administrative, creative or computer professional.
I work an inside sales job, and in 2013 my gross pay after taxes barely broke 17k.
(Factoring in taxes bumps this to a total of $19,108.67)
My last issue, is that I am not the only one in this same position. There are at least a dozen other employees within the company with my exact role and purpose, whom are all paid the same way.
Now that I think about it, about half of the entire company (of roughly ~250 employees) are all salaried in various positions.
Does that change anything legally, or am I just being ungrateful?
Thankfully, all of the records are kept digitally of both pay stubs AND all punches. I have already made a physical copy of the entire year of 2013's pay stubs and punches, just in case.
Unfortunately, however, being an at-will state leaves the selection of an Employment Lawyer pretty thin. There are only a few in my area, whom have not yet replied to my voice mails.
I was hoping to gain some insight here to possibly re-word my potential case, as I know the ones I've reached out to are very busy people.
With about over 100 similarly situated employees, it may be worth the while of an attorney located in another city. Don't limit your search to your immediate neighborhood.
