I work for a physician and when I started 14 years ago I was salary. I work as a medical assistant/patient care person. Since we now have a office manager I am told that I need to fill out a time sheet and now she is trying to make me hourly. Can she do that? I work in new jersey.

Unless you have a contract that says otherwise, yes. There are lots of limitations on who can be a salaried/overtime exempt employee. There are no limitations on who can be an hourly employee.

all depends on your contract read it and find out or discuss with your manager why its going hourly and you are happy with the way things are :)

Of course they can. They could change your job description or even lower your pay as long as you still made at least minimum wage. They could even just terminate you. Uh, YOU work for THEM, remember? The employer sets the rules.
