Legal Question

Asked on: 11/17/12, 10:40 am

My supervisor is requiring 58 hours as a standard work week. I am an exempt employee who does not manage others. He put 48 hours as standard in writing last week even though the company handbook states that 40 hours is the typical work week.

Can he do this? Should I file a complaint with my HR department or go to the Department of Labor? Or, do I just have to lump it as the new normal and look for a new job?
