Report answer

40 hours exempt employee, but they check on me every day. They want to know what I'm doing at every hour of my day. If I have to work from home, that doesn't count as part of my 40 hours, only office hours from 9 to 5. Sometimes we don't get time for lunch and we have to eat while working.
