Hey all I don't normally post but I thought this might shed some light on
the question at hand. I believe that an employer may pay you a fixed amount
regardless of the number of hours worked if you fall into specific
occupations which are exempted from the FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act), one
of those occupations is a "computer systems analyst, software engineer, or
other similarly skilled worker" . For the full text of the law visit,
(check out section
13 )http://www.dol.gov/esa/regs/statutes/whd/FairLaborStandAct.pdf . Anyway
hope this might help.
