Wife just got a new job in a big production company.
Today is her first day working in the new company and just reliase that she need to work 10.5 hours ( Mon - Fri ). She was a little bit shock as she expect to work only for 38 hours per week. She is on salary basis.
In her offer it wrote:
You are required to work at least 38hours per week. You are required to work during company ordinary business hours, unless otherwise agreed by the company. However, you will also need to be flexible about when you work and you will required to work such additional hours ( and at such times) as are necessary to perform your duties and responsibilities or required by the company. You acknowledge that this is reasonable and is part of your role and that this is reflected in your remuneration, which is to compensate you for all hours you work.
This is her second job. The Question is:
1. is she going to get paid overtime if she work more than 38hours?
2. is this legal to work 50 hours per week?
Overall, Thank you in advance for any of your advice.
Thanks guys for the input.. really glad to read all of your opinion.
