40 is 40 or is 40 45?

You are a salaried employee with no overtime. You get an hour for lunch. Do you work 9-5 or 9-6?

Overtime Pay for Exempt Employees

I need the advice of an HR person or labor expert regarding OT pay for exempt employees. I work in Louisiana in an IT field. My company was acquired by another in June 0f 2010. As part of the acquisition process, they changed all employees from non-exempt to exempt (salaried) with the expectation that requirements for overtime were going to be eliminated. Since January 2011, I've logged about 200 hours of OT. I have each item documented in a spreadsheet, and these are legitimate projects that required OT. Am I entitled to any form of compensation? The back pay would be considerable (appr. 10k dollars), but I don't know how to approach the subject with my employer.

Taking a Loan in a Foreign Country

I would like to know if I took a bank loan in another country and had the money wired to me here in the US, around 160K, if the IRS would tax that amount. I called them and apparently they didn't know because they could not answer the question. I will have to pay back that loan so i would imagine that the amount wouldn't be taxed here (as long as i prove to the IRS that i got the loan).

What exactly does "exempt" mean?

So, I am an exempt, salaried employee. The agreement I signed before taking my job was that I would work 40 hours per week. But, of course, my employer is now scheduling me for 42-45 hours per week. As an exempt employee, am I just expected to work these extra hours? [more inside]
