I have a friend who frequently asks me:
“Since I’m salary don’t you think I should be able to come in to work at 9am? I think that’s fair.”
Different companies have different salary policies. Some say you must work a minimum of 40 hours per week. Some say you need to work as many hours to get all of your work done – whether that’s 25 hours or 55 hours.
I know that personally I must be at work by 8am because I have an obligation to my team and to the company to provide my service and knowledge should someone knocking. So that whole “I don’t have to show up until 9am” think won’t fly in my job.
So is there a “right” definition of salary? I’m curious to see what everyone’s salary policy is at their work place. Is showing up at 9am acceptable?
