I am wondering about the new law that requires salaried

Customer Question

I am wondering about the new law that requires salaried employees who make under $48,000 a year to clock in. My question is I have always worked around 30 to 36 hours a week on my salary now. They told me Friday I would clock in but now only be paid for the actual hours put in. Meaning I am now hourly and lost the salary. Is that the way the law is meant to work?
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Arizona
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: No
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

can they now lower me from my salary to the hourly due to the new law.
Expert:  Infolawyer replied 26 days ago.

Yes, this can be done, UNLESS you have an employment contract or they are doing this to you because of your race, gender, age, nationality (which would evidence a discriminatory intent)
