Legal Question in Employment Law in Illinois

Maximum Work Hours

Can an employer require you to work over 40 hrs /wk when you are exempt, have not received or been informed of any vacation time awarded? Is there a law that addresses salaried employees and the amount of work hours per week? Also, is there a law that addresses benefits for full time salaried employees (i.e. breaks, lunch, vacation, sick days)

Even though you have been classified as exempt, it is possible that you have been misclassified. Please send me with your contact information to [email protected] so that we can discuss this matter in greater detail.
