Employment Law/schedule


Im a Salaried employee been working for my company for 6 years my general manager is asking me to post a schedule with the time im  in and out is this right?


There is nothing inherently unlawful about the employer requiring you simply to post a schedule, although  under some circumstances it can be a factor in leading a government agency to suspect that you may really be a non-exempt hourly employee.  I would need to know more about your situation to give you additional specific advice on this question.  For example, are you still being paid the same no matter how many hours you work? If so, then the schedule issue is not likely to change your status as an exempt salaried employee.  

I hope you find this helpful.
