Re: legal experts: salaried exempt vs. non-exempt employees
Salary exempt means you get paid based on a 40 hour schedule, it doesn't matter if you work 60 or 30, pay is the same. With these jobs, the rules are usually more laxed. If you take a 1.5 hour lunch, who cares. If you can get everything done and leave at 4:30, that is fine to. It's about getting the work done, doesn't matter how long or how little it takes. I have never seen an instance where a salary exempt employee is docked for not working 40 hours.
Salary exempt employees SHOULD have paid time off as well.
