Can an employer deduct pay/PTO time if they aren't paying OT to salaried employees?

Question Details: My employer is deducting time for being late 1 hour to 4 hours at a time from PTO time and if you don't have it from your check. Even if you had worked over the previous day by that amount. We are paid 15th and last day of every month. Also, no one makes 50k or more but yet no one gets OT. Under new laws, isn't there suppose to be OT? What little PTO time is earned gets depleted for every little thing even when working over 40 hours in a week. How to proceed?
