I don't qualify for OT since I recently switched to a salary instead of hourly wage.
That's not a disqualifier iirc

it might not disqualify automatically, but I believe (over a certain salary) it allows employers to cancel. Didn't BHO raise that number recently?

I'm a manager- pretty sure that disqualifies me from OT.

Yes, that would do it.

I wonder if the wash sale rule applies to non-U.S. persons.
I would think so. But how is that relevant here if we a discussing a gain?

But it should at the same time exempt him from getting docked.

It's not that. Unless you're contractually obligated to work X number of hours, I don't see how they dock your pay. If they don't like your performance they can fire you but you have to get paid your salary.

Unless this was agreed to before hand (in a handbook or such).
If you don't care why would you comment?

From my previous posts in this thread- you might have guessed things weren't going to well for me...  ;)

My contract stipulated that I would provide 6 weeks written notice prior to leaving.

I emailed my employers of my resignation- and we had a verbal agreement that the 6 weeks time would not be necessary and I was free to leave immediately.

The following day my employers offered me a different position and different salary and I accepted. I was not presented with a new contract.

However, the position still didn't work out and I resigned yesterday- giving 1 day notice.

In the absence of a new contract- does it revert to stipulations of my previous contract?

My employer claims that I owe him 4 weeks notice as stipulated in my contract (he is wrong about the 4 weeks- my last contract required 6 weeks.)

Is he going to sue you?

I hope not.

Does he have grounds to sue?

I don't know whether he will or won't. But I need to know if he can or if he's bluffing. He slipped it into an email to me- and it smells like a threat or something...

Need to know whether I still need to play nice or if I can finally be frank with him.
