Afraid to stand up in fear of losing my job.

Hi, I have a situation. I'm a non exempt salary employee. The owner of the company in my opinion is discriminating. He is allowing an hourly person to make up lost hours before during lunch and after normal working hours. I have asked to do the same and was told no with no reason. He does not allow me to grant those deals to the hourly people I have working under myself. I am forced to use my vacation hours to take care of my children. I work late and on weekends and am also not being paid over time. What if any legal leg do I have to stand on? Thank you.

Exempt employee?

It sounds like you may not be an "exempt" employee--exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act in which case you would be entitled to, at least, overtime. But need to know more facts before deciding whether you are non-exempt and whether boss is discriminating.
