This is actually an issue that friend is having at work. She works in retail management(assistant manager). She is on salary and recently her boss told her that he wants her to work 6 days a week, instead of five like she normally does. When she asked him about compensation, he told her that she won't be paid extra. This is not because there is some project he needs her to work on, he told her that business was slow and they need to get more sales. She just told me the other day that she was talking to coworker(who is also an assistant manager)and who also was told to work 6 days a week, that he WILL be getting paid overtime(that's what he was told by the boss). That doesn't seem right. And they are not getting extra days off or anything like that. I know that laws vary from state to state but does anyone know if this is legal?
