XXXXXXX employees working at California companies are being told by XXXXXXX to report only 40 hours worked on their timesheets given to the California company, even if they worked far more. They are being told that this is because XXXXXXX classifies them as exempt. They work alongside contractors from other contracting agencies, performing the same roles, except the other contractors get paid for every hour they bill, and their employers aren't telling them how to bill. How would California law view this situation?
The job role is Systems Analyst and the compensation is most likely between $40 and $60 per hour.
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.I'm sorry to hear about your situation and hope I can help.What duties do these XXXXXXX employees perform? Are they supervisors or regular contractor employees?
One is a supervisor who comes from India and has been with XXXXXXX 10 years. The other is an American who is just a regular contractor. The American did mention that XXXXXXX paid him for 4 months before they found him an assignment. He is a Systems Analyst with no supervisory role.
