Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Thank you for your follow-up, John.
It does appear as if they are attempting to claim you as 'part-time' but you are working full-time hours. It may be wise to discuss this first with your HR person and have them re-evaluate your employment position and formally upgrade your OR agree to not place extraneous hours on you in such a fairly extensive capacity. If that fails, you may want to consider contacting the Department of Labor and have them investigate the non-profit to see if they are violating wage law by failing to compensate you for your rightfully earned time. While you could be 'salary', it still requires the employer to reasonably maintain proper hours for your work and not make you work excessively while claiming you for nominal time.
Hope that helps.
