I read a thread for 2009:
and I have a follow-up question.
The questions was can a company force employees to take pto during a shutdown?
Pattymd pointed out one subtlety:
"Agree. I would mention, though, that for exempt employees ONLY, if the shutdown is not for a full workweek AND the employee does not have enough PTO time to cover the shutdown, the employee still must be paid."
My situation is this:
My company has a holiday on Friday Dec 24th and Monday Dec 27th. The company is then shutting down the rest of that week, Tu-Fri, Dec 28-31.
Thus, they are shutting down for less than a full week. Does this count as shutting down for less than a full week, given the Monday holiday? It would seem the answer is "yes", since the company only has 4 working days that week, with one declared holiday.
The question is, would I, as an exempt employee, be entitled to be paid for these days if I did not have enough PTo to cover them?
