I have a question regarding the new overtime rule stating

I have a question regarding the new overtime rule stating that any employee earning less than $47,476 ($913/week) can no longer be considered a salaried associated and must be paid hourly—therefore qualifying them for overtime pay. We have someone working as software tech support who previously was not affected by this but given the new law, his earning fall below that amount. His salary is currently at $35,360 plus he gets paid $150 for on-call support each week whether a call comes in or not. So it puts his annual income at $43,160 which is still below that new amount. Can you please give me some guidance on how to handle this?

My husband works for the Chicopee Housing Authority in

My husband works for the Chicopee Housing Authority in Chicopee MA as an Operations Maintenance Manager, non-union position, for a salary of $63,000 per year. His boss, the Executive Director, docks his pay if he takes an hour off at the end of the day for a medical appointment, even though he works more than 40 hours (in early, stays late, works some Saturdays). I told him I thought his was against the FLSA, that he is salary therefore she cannot dock his pay like that. Am I correct?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MassachusettsJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: I believe it is "at will" full time. The maintenance workers he supervises are in a union, but management is not.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No I think that is all. For an example last week he worked 6 hrs on Saturday plus 9.5 hrs each day, so his total was way over 40 however he has to take off an hour early tomorrow for a dentist appointment and the executive director expects him to only be paid for 39 hours.

I live in state. I am an exempt salaried employee. This year

I live in Washington state. I am an exempt salaried employee. This year my company announced a change in PTO policy stating that if we have non-billable hours during the week between Christmas and New Year's we must use PTO hours to cover the difference to achieve 40 hours for the week. While the policy applies to all salaried employees, it is only enforced on those that have fewer than 40 billable hours for that week due to current staffing assignments. Is this legal in general and specific to WA state?JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: at willJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: consequences if an employee does not have accrued PTO to cover non-billable hours during that period.
