katarina, doom

Well, this is going to be interesting...

Just got back from a department meeting where the head of our department announced that, thanks to recent changes in California law, all the writers and editors are going to be reclassified as non-exempt employees effective July 1st. (For those not up on employment jargon, this means that instead of being an employee who gets a fixed salary regardless of how many hours I work, I will be paid hourly and be eligible for overtime if I work more than 8 hours a day. With the caveat that overtime has to be approved by a manager.)
