A: Hi, more information is needed here. How many hours a week is your husband working? How much is your rent? It sounds like you are saying is isn't necessarily being paid by the hour, but rather whatever the amount of your rent is and regardless of the number of hours he works. It would be unlawful for the employer to pay your husband under the minimum wage, or not pay him time and a half for hours worked over 40. I would reach out to an employment law attorney in your state for a consultation.
