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?

can they now lower me from my salary to the hourly due to the new law.
Expert:  Infolawyer replied 9 months 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)
