  • Salary for an employee Oklahoma

    My son works for a company, upon him getting hired him and his boss agreed to a set amount of wages, with no weekends worked. It was agreed that he would work Monday thru Friday. He has been called in several Saturdays in a row to work, at least 5, which he did. But he had to take off on a Monday for a Family situation, his boss docked him $200.00 for that day. Stating that if he was not there he would not get paid for the day. But he has not compensated him for the extra days worked for the weekend. Is this legal for the boss to do?
    Please anxious to find a response to my question.

    What does your son do? If he is exempt, then yes, he could be docked for the full day he did not work but would not have to be paid for the "extra" days he comes in.

      He works in the oilfield. I dont believe he would be exempt.

        What does he do in that oilfield? It makes a difference.

          I am not sure of his title, but if I had to give him one, it would be a Crew Leader. Which means he tells someone else what to do. But prior to him taking off, his boss said he would fill in for him for that day. He has never missed a day of work other than that one day.

            If he manages the work of others then it is very possible he is exempt. Whether or not they can dock his pay for the day has nothing to do with whether or not it was approved or someone filled in for him.

            Is he paid on a salary basis?
