SAN FRANCISCO – Advances in communication technology have left employees feeling exploited by employers. According to an Employment Law Alliance America At Work survey more Americans who are not in management positions are taking their work home. The national poll of 1,000 men and women conducted by Reed Haldy McIntosh & Associates focused on non-exempt employees whose work hours are legally regulated and who are entitled to overtime compensation. Among the findings, 21% of non-exempt workers said they believe that their employer is “taking advantage” of them through their current compensation policies relating to work performed outside the regular workplace. In addition, once an employee puts in over 10 extra hours per week, the more he or she feels abused (47%). With 52% of non-exempt workers who do not ask to be compensated for their overtime feeling exploited, the survey suggests that fear rather than dedication that prevents many of these workers from asking for their due.
