Hi

Yes, certain salary positions can be required to work in excess of 40 hours without additional compensation.

Many "professional" occupations are exempt from the law requiring overtime pay.

Please review the below resource from the Department of Labor. You can search you occupation and determine if you are entitled to overtime pay.
