Not for this dentist. As a rule, dentists' offices are not open 40 hours/week.
My daily salary is $300, regardless of how long the day is (usually 8.5 - 9.0 hours). I'm okay with that. I am not okay when the rules change when I work less than 8.0 hours and suddenly I'm an "hourly" employee because it's in the dentist's best interest.
No. Contracts are not typical in our profession.
Do I have a legitimate, actionable complaint in that I am paid as a "salaried" employee on days when I work more than 8 hours on a given day...but then paid as an "hourly" employee when I work less than 8 hours on a given day.
Seems my status should be one or the other, not both.
It's as we expected. Many thanks.
