DH got a raise today (yay!) but it is because his employer is making him salary based instead of being paid per hour. He already works overtime a lot and doesn''t get paid for it... it just accrues and he uses it for vacation or whatever. At the end of his time there they will pay out his overtime. So really there has never been an incentive to working late hours/overtime since he doesn''t get paid any more than for his 40 hours per week. I''m worried now that he is going to be on a salary, that his employer will have him working even more overtime with absolutely NO incentive. Does anyone have any experiences with this sort of thing? Is it reasonable to ask his boss to guarantee he won''t work more than 45 or so hours per week? His raise isn''t huge but is helpful... I hope his employer doesn''t see this as a way to work my husband to death.
