I understand what's happening. I'm saying as a salaried employee, I never had to input hours - obviously I was always over $23k. The question is, does a person with a $45k salary now legally have to enter their hours?
How do you actually track it? As a salaried employee, I have never been asked how many hours I work. If I work 20 or 80,no one officially knows. So why not just say something like "you can't go over 40 hours." If they do, and they complain to the Department of Labor, you could say, "they were ordered not to go over 40 hours, and we were unaware of them actually ever doing so."
I actually can't complain about the lawyers work with. In fact, I had to get their opinion about something recently and they gave me the thumbs up, and my engineers were saying that they were wrong, and the proposal would get us sued.
They used to be all about safety and safety conscious customers. I think the problem is they have been muddled in their offerings and messaging over the last few years. I don't think the recession helped either. Their customer isn't the average luxury car shopper, and their base was probably hit harder than say MB or Porsche's customers.
