Working you to death

Working you to death

So the employer says you are “salaried”, and then gives you 50 million things to do that take you all of the regular workday, and then about three or four hours extra. — That is what we are talking about.

Something is wrong with this picture, and there are some Missouri and Federal laws that can help us.

I would bet that you are not really “exempt” from the Federal and State overtime laws, if your tasks require so much time. Your employer may create the illusion that you are “exempt” by using the subterfuge of the “salaried” idea.

But, ultimately, it is the judge who decides whether you qualify as “exempt” from the labor laws — The employer’s opinion means nothing.

See a lawyer and do something to try to improve your quality of life.
