Back log of work
Can an employer require exempt (professional) employees to work 4 hours over and above a normal 8 hour shift in order to catch up a back log of work? These are employees that come in early, work over lunch, stay late whenever needed and maintain a rotating on call schedule. But now the boss is requiring them to pick one night per week that they must work from 5-9 after working 8-5. The back log is not the employees fault.
