Do I get paid for coming to work on my day off?

I am a key holder at a retail store and I share keys with another manager. I was told I have to come in on my day off to pick up the keys from the other employee. Should I be getting paid to come in?

If you are are a non-exempt worker (i.e. you're not in a managment position and typically paid hourly), then you are to be paid for all time worked. However, if you are an "exempt" worker (i.e. in a management osition and typically paid salary), then your salary covers all of your work time.
