I have a unique situation. This past year I was employed by my college in Minnesota. I (like many others) was employed through "Residential Life", as a Community Adviser, (Aka: an RA or residential adviser).
The job is a 24/7 job and there are several reasons I am providing this context.
One of the stipulations of our employment contract was that we spend "every" night in our dorm rooms, unless we have been given the night off (specifically listed as around 2:00am-8:00am. We were limited to two weekends off a month but as I said the job was 24/7, seven days a week.
My question is, this was not a volunteer position, we weren't paid by the hour, but we were also not a "salaried position" and therefore not overtime exempt so how can they possibly get away with not paying us overtime?
