I was hired several months ago as an archaeologist by a large engineering services firm with a permanent contract with a U.S. military installation. The advertised job title was 'Archaeologist,' but upon my hire, I was given the title 'Contract Specialist.'
My duties match those of Archaeological Technician 2 or 3 as defined by the SCA, and I am required to work full time, but I am paid hourly (not salaried) at a rate lower than the prevailing wage for either of those positions and with no benefits.
When I approached HR about my status, they claimed I was professional staff and an exempt employee, so they need not comply with the SCA salary/benefit guidelines.
Do I have legal recourse to demand prevailing wage/benefits, or is this a loophole my employer can legally exploit?
