My question involves employment and labor law for the state of: Illinois
I am a salaried employee in the state of Illinois. I routinely work between 40 to 60 hours a week. I was sent an email from my employer that he will be shutting down the business for the 2 weeks after christmas due to lack of business with out pay to employees. If I am a salaried employee, can he not pay me? doesnt he have to pay me regardless of hours worked because I am salaried ?
