My question involves employment and labor law for the state of: Georgia
I am supposed to be an exempt employee. Roughly 4 months ago, my employer decided to cut all employee's hours by being shut down one day a week. At this time I was told that I would not be paied for the one day a week I would not be going into work. My paychecks have since then shown my full salary and then a deduction for the 2 days during that pay period that I would not be working on. I recently read the FLSA rules regarding exempt employees and this appears to be an illegal practice that would subsequently qualify me to be a non-exempt employee. Is this the case and how should I address this issue?
