Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation and hope I can help.

Are you considered an exempt employee?


If you don't know, please let me know your job duties, and I can try to determine that for you.

Also here is some information about the exempt categorizations:

Did you have a contract with your employer that stated you would only work 45 hours a week or were you just told that?
