Career PrepJob search takes practice – just like studying for the SAT. That’s why we came up with daily Career Prep questions to help you “study” for your job search!

Here’s today’s question:

Maria is an hourly worker. She regularly gets 40 hours/week at her employer. Last week, they closed the office and told her she didn’t need to come in because of a hurricane. When Maria got her paycheck, she was only paid for 32 hours. She assumed she should have been paid for the hours since she was available to work and it was the company’s decision to close. Meanwhile, she knows the salaried employees at the company won’t be docked any pay.

Is she entitled to the 8 hours of compensation she lost?
