I am sorry what does exempt mean ? I am a regular salary employee
nobody is paid overtime - 2 employees are in training started working there within the last 3 weeks, the other employee does not have the knowledge to work independent and the 4th employee is the owners brother who has invested into the company. My title is CSR (customer service representative) my salary is $ 33000 per year which is more than m/m wage in the state of FL if I divide into a 40 hr work week, a friend informed me that as long as I receive at least m/m wage there is absolutely nothing I can do due to FL law ? Is this correct ?
If I will from now on work 08.30 to 5.00pm and do not work overtime, can the employer just tell me to leave like he did with my former coworker ( she requested several times to get unemployment benefits - but never got an answer)
In a "nutshell" is there any advantage for me to work in a right to work State ?
