Exempt Employee hours and timesheets

If you are an exempt employee how many hours can an employer require you to work?

Do non-profit agencies have different exempt laws then for profit businesses?

Exempt Employee

Employers can require exempt employees to work as many hours as the employer wants. An exempt employee is one that is classified as exempt from federal wage and hour laws. The short definition of an exempt employee is one that controls his/her own work and is usually paid a salary. But, just because an employee is paid a salary does not always mean that you are an exempt employee, the ability to control your own work is the key factor in determining your exempt status. As far as whether non-profit agencies have different laws than for profit businesses, I don't know the answer to that question.
