Legal Answers
41 Questions Answered
Q. Am I going to lose my current job?
A: You would need to reach out directly to a South Carolina employment lawyer for a review of the contract in more detail.
Q. I am trying to find out if I can break my employment contract. I can send over the contract to who is able to answer.
A: If you are working in SC, you should reach out to a local SC employment lawyer for a contract review.
Q. Is my company required to pay me more, as a salary member of management, when being forced to work 7 days a week?
A: Normally, if you are paid a salary and are performing the duties of a manager (such hiring, firing, and supervising two or more employees), or if you meet any other requirements for an exemption, you would not be paid overtime, no matter how many hours you are required to work. If you believe you should be getting paid overtime, you should reach out to an employment lawyer from your state for a consult to discuss those issues further.
