93 Questions Answered

Q. If you are a salaried employee, is there a percentage of time your week can be spent tasking?
A: I am not sure what you mean by "tasking." If you are properly classified as a salary exempt employee, then you would not be entitled to overtime regardless of the number of hours you work per week or the time you spend on certain tasks. However, you must be paid overtime for all hours worked in excess of 40 in a workweek if you are not properly classified as a salary exempt employee under one of the available exemptions (e.g., administrative, professional, computer, etc.). You should consult an employment attorney in your area to discuss your job duties and pay structure to ensure your employer is complying with the law.
Q. My Previous employer is attempting to alter our severance agreement in order to deem me ineligible for severance pay.
A: It sounds like your employer may be in breach of your agreement. You should immediately contact an attorney in your area for assistance interpreting the agreement and contacting your employer.
Q. I have a doctor's note restricting 3rd shift work due to seizures. Does my work legally have to accommodate me
A: It sounds like you would have a medical condition that qualifies you for protection under the Americans with Disabilities Act ("ADA"). Under the ADA, an employer does not necessarily have to provide you with the first accommodation you propose, but they are required to engage in an interactive process with you to determine an accommodation that would allow you to perform the essential functions of you job. If your employer has denied the accommodation of restricting 3rd shift work, have they proposed any other alternative accommodations? You should contact an employment lawyer in your area for assistance during this process to ensure you are protecting your rights.
