I was offered a job by a company and initially they offered me a salary position. Since I would be driving from Southeast Wisconsin to Minneapolis, MN for months, I negotiated an hourly wage so that I could obtain overtime.
When I arrived for my first week, no one had me clock my hours. By that Wednesday, no one had been tracking my hours and when I asked my manager via email about how I am to track my hours, he did not respond.
It wasn't until a week later when he pulled me into his office to talk about my training plan that he tells me that he needs me to switch to salary (with no increase in pay) because he stated that the company had no way of punching employees in and out. I stated my concerns about overtime and he informed me that they would not make me work overtime. I verbally agreed to it based on his work, but no new paperwork was signed.
However, last week my boss sent me on a work trip (my job never stated continental US travel) in which I incurred significant overtime while also being told that the company is no longer relocating to Wisconsin and that I am basically out of a job.
Is this even legal? I have a copy of the signed offer letter.
An attorney would need to review your offer letter and all of your information to adequately respond to your concerns about how you are being treated in your new job and determine what options you have to address your concerns.
