exempt employee that works 50-55 hours a week has just been told to only put 40 hours a week on the time sheet. Is that right?

exempt employee that works 50-55 hours a week has just been told to only put 40 hours a week on the time sheet. Is that right? I do a lot of overnight travel and put 12 hours due to starting around 7 and usually getting to the next hotel around 7. But, the new Manager says we're only to put down 8 hours for each day so it comes out to 40.

Your question is confusing. If you are an exempt employee, you are not paid based on the number of hours worked and are not eligible for overtime. If you are a nonexempt employee, some travel time is compensable and some is not. I don't think this is an issue you can resolve by asking a question online, since there are complicating factors. You should make an appointment to consult with a labor attorney and go over the specific facts in your employment.
