Overtime the week of the my exam! [#permalink]

Wouldn't you know it, the week I schedule for my exam, my supervisor starts 2 hours a day of mandatory overtime. Have I mentioned I hate my current job? I don't want to spend the $50 to reschedule, plus I would have to wait a few more weeks and I already have asked for the day off and have other things planned after the morning test.

Oh well, what doens't kill us makes us pissed! (That's "angry" for the Brits among us :-D)

If you are a salaried employee and don't get paid for overtime, it is 100% illegal for your boss to require it and not compensate you. And demanding an extra 25% in hours is absurd.

Actually, if you are a salaried employee and your company requires you to work over-time, it is not illegal. That would be an exempt employee under labor laws. I'm actually an hourly employee based upon an annual amount of money. It's an odd situation, but I do get time and a half for overtime. At least that's a positive.

Well, at least you'll get paid for it. That would cover the cost of rescheduling. But then again, can you trust that they won't do it again? I trust they don't know you're pursuing b-school?
