Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you.
An employer is free to require their employees to work as many hours as they wish. However, the employees may be entitled to OVERTIME for such work, even if they are "salaried" employees.
Salaried employees are entitled to overtime unless they fall into one of the few categories of "overtime exempt" employees. Exemptions are provided for certain managerial employees, administrative employees, and professional employees, for example. For more information regarding the exemptions to overtime, read this guide: http://www.las-elc.org/factsheets/exemptions.pdf
ALL salaried employees must receive a salary that amount to twice the minimum wage ($8/hr) for all hours worked.
So, unless an employee falls within one of the few exemptions from overtime and makes a salary twice the minimum wage for all hours worked, he or she would be entitled to overtime for all hours worked in excess of 8 per day or 40 per week. Provided an employer complies with these rules, they may require employees to work as many hours as they'd like.
