Can a motel employee...

Can a motel employee be made to go from being paid hourly to being salaried for doing the same job

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Colorado

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

Full time

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

If they can be made to go salaried is there a limit on hours that they can be made to work

provided there is notice one can be changed from hourly to salaried. If this results in a major pay change one may contest it and often file for unemployment benefits.
