Ray, a resident apartment manager at a 16-unit complex, is scheduled to maintain office hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day. During this time he is to be in the office and available to tenants. Ray is compensated with a "rent free" apartment with a valid written agreement counting $351.20 against the employers minimum wage requirement. Is there a minimum wage violation?

Answer: Yes!

Rational: The time spent in the office, or in other words time where the employee is "subject to the control of the employer," adds up to 6-hours a day or 30-hours a week. Thus, Ray is only making $2.72 an hour for all hours spent "subject to the control of the employer."
