The overtime declaration was only verbal, from 2 managers to 2 employed teachers.
I do not believe I am being treated unfairly based on a protected class. I believe it is because I work more overtime than other teachers, but that has been because I am the only one with anywhere near that many students (and even though my average rate of time per student has always been less than the maximum rate of 30 hours per 50 students).
FYI, I totally appreciate your honesty (even though it's obviously not what I wanted to hear).
2 follow-up questions:
1. Doesn't the precedent that they set during last summer and afterwards of paying me for hours worked over 30 somewhat override the exempt status?
2. If they do decide to dismiss me in the near future (for whatever reason they claim), which most likely would be for reprisal for reporting the practices to H.R., would that constitute any type of wrongful termination?
