I work in a public Library and put in 37 hours a week. The last 20 years or so I have been paid a salary. Without warning the director switched my pay to an hourly wage. Was this legal? Is there any thing I can do about it?
Yes, it is legal.
No, there is nothing you can do about it.
There has been a recent move among employers towards switching employees from salaried-exempt to hourly-nonexempt status. It is happening all over the country.
This is probably legal. However, I would want to know if you are part of a union or a state employee.
