"salaried employee" forced to work more hours

1 Answers. Asked on May 03rd, 2017 on Labor and Employment - New Jersey
More details to this question:
At my job here in NJ I am a BDC representative aka Internet sales and i get paid a set amount per week salary and then i make commissions per appt that shows as well as a small commission on each car sold. Now with that out the way i work 43.5 hours per week we do not get over time and when i receive my checks they are always marked as 40 hours now Ive brought up the issue before of why is it marked 40 and the reason is said to be because it is supposed to be mandatory breaks which has never been enforced but I dont fuss about it so there has been a lot of tension lately in the dealership and a lot of turn around too. So now for the BDC dept. it has been said that we are to work 45 hours / week mandatory and that there is no overtime pay and reason being is "there is apparently new laws for "commission based sales" that they work how ever long needed" I'm looking to see if this is true and if there are even any "NEW" laws pertaining to this matter of commission based sales. Thank you

The car business is slowing after a record year. Do whatever is required to keep your job. There will be significant 'downsizing' in the industry. Ed Dimon
