Employment Law

I was hired by a consulting firm to work on a part-time basis conducting executive assessments and was told I would work between 25 - 30 hours per week for $400 per day. If I work 4 hours a day then my assumption was that I would be paid $200...not $400. Similarly, I assumed that if I worked 12 hours on a particular day I would be paid $600. If I spend 6 hours on a Saturday doing work (that is required in order to meet client deadlines) then I would be paid $600. I do not receive any benefits, paid vacation, paid sick days, etc., and have been working between 30 - 45 hours per week, which is okay....I am paid by the company directly (meaning I do not 'bill' them) but my question is this: when they say that the pay is $400 per day, are they legally required to pay me per hour any additonal time beyond 8 hours?

Would appreciate your input.
