I am a photographer in A major US city. I work for a major e-commerce fashion brand. I am on salary. For the past 8 months, my direct manager has allowed me to leave early once I finish the shot list for the day. Their boss has recently come back from pregnancy leave, and has decided this is unacceptable. (She works from home lol, and we are in the office 5 days a week lol). She has literally told us she won’t increase the work we are doing, and there isn’t any busy work for us to do, but we must be there until 5. This means I take a 1 hour lunch, on top of another 30 minute break, and literally just sit around and fuck off ready to pull my hair out. Is this legal? If I’m on salary, can I leave when the job is done, legally, if she can’t give me anymore work?
