Default Salaried manager paid hourly

A few months ago I gave notice that I would be leaving my job as a salaried manager. I had a new director and she immeidately escorted me out. My final check was for just a couple of hours for that day.

A friend told me that as a salaried employee, if I work some hours in the day, I am entitled to be paid for the full day. When I spoke to HR about it, they told me that they routinely pay salaried employees for the number of hours that they work, unless it is over 40. But if it is under 35, they only pay for the actual hours worked.

This sounds a little funky- like have your cake and eat it, too. Can anyone enlighten me? And if my friend is correct, what agency would I contact to report this?

Did you give 2 weeks notice? If you did, and got escorted out without pay, you have a legit gripe.

Yes, I gave written notice and wasn't even allowed to pack up anything. I had to go by the next morning at 8am to be met outside with a cart of my things. I knew this person's reputation and had most of my things out already.

In Florida, they have a right to make you leave immediately and do not have to pay you for the two weeks, even if the policy manual requires that you give two weeks.

Oy! When did this happen?

Call the labor department or whatever organization it is and get some more info. At the very least, they should have paid you for four hours (half a day). It's too bad you didn't just leave at the end of the day. These people sound real nasty. No wonder you wanted out of there...
