California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
I am ok with continuing to wait for an answer. Thank you for your effeorts on my behalf.
Thank you for responding to me. I apologize for not getting back to you sooner but I have been placed on a 12 work day by my employer. They claim that I am the "manager" in title. But the responsibilities I am responsible for are the menial jobs to maintian the operation of the facility. Example, I purchased and installed new eco friendly lighting in the warehouse/work areas so as to make work performance more safe and reduce electrical useage and prevent accidents. The previous lighting was track lighting in two areas only that was expected to light a 2000 square foot work environment. All of the managerial decisions are made by the owner and I am not a part of said decisions. Example, new prospective employees are being interviewed and I have no part in the hiring process. To date, they use the title of "manager" with me and in the same sentence reiterate that I am making $14.00 per hour. I am also working their second internet business by packaging and tracking sales from Ebay that my employer makes. I am not compensated for this work. My pay stub indicates that my wage is predicated on a rate of $14.00 for 160 hours per pay period. I figured this amount based on a 40 hour work week during a 4 week pay period. My employer began my wages hourly. When my wages are submitted for each pay period, it is based on a 160 hour pay period @ $14.00 per hour. My actual average hours per work period is on or about 200 (documented). Now I have been advised that my average hours per week will now be on or about 240 per pay period. My employer uses the "managerial" title in the same sentence with how much they pay me hourly on a regular basis. Also, during the past hours I have been working and this new schedule, I am not allowed a second lunch break, You can forget about regular breaks because they use the managerial title to satisfy whatever need they want and as a basis to exclude any breaks. Thank you for taking the time to address my concerns. I think the managerial exclusion as utilized by my employers is a fraud. Everything they do is prefaced by the fact that I am paid $14.00 per hour. I appreciate your input. If I don't get back to you soon, it is because I am working. I will respond tomorrow night at or about this time. Again, thank you for your assistance.
Just curious, do you represent clients from this veniew? If not, could you refer me to someone? I appreciate your input. Thank you in advance. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
