Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.

1. You are working two jobs and not being paid at all? How is that?

This seems like a very crucial matter for you, and your questions and issues suggest that an in-depth conversation might best suit your needs. If you are interested, for a nominal charge I can offer you a phone conference as opposed to continuing in this question and answer thread. Let me know if you don't want a call and I will be happy continue here with an answer for you.

Thanks in advance,

Doug

Same employer?

You are paid as a salaried exempt employee?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
same employer and yes exempt.
Expert:  LawTalk replied 1 year ago.

And is the second job qualified as another exempt position---for example you supervise 2 or more people?

Thanks for the additional information.

Under Texas law, so long as additional jobs that you do qualify as a salary exempt position, you can be forced to do 5 different jobs, or 10, or 100 for that matter. Only if you are told to do a job that is not capable of legally being classified as a salary-exempt job would you be entitled to additional pay for doing that job.

Good afternoon,

Do you have any additional questions that you would like me to address for you? In case you would like a phone call to further discuss these issues you have raised, I will make that offer to you. You are certainly not obligated to accept a call offer, but many people do find it helpful for clarification purposes, as well as to allow them to ask additional questions.

If I have provided you with the information you were seeking, would you please now rate my service to you?

Thanks in advance,

Doug
