  • Pay reductions in CA California

    I know retroactive pay reductions are prohibited in CA - but can an owner say there will be pay reductions and then start them the same day (even if nothing was in writing on when or a specific reduction amount?). If it is in the middle of a pay period, can exempt employee's pay be pro-rated for the reduction?

    Also - can he require exempt people take a day off unpaid a week (even if they have available vacation?) Not a whole week off unpaid - just one day a week (in addition to the pay reduction)

    No. Exempt Salaried docking restrictions.

    Also, not your question, but CA minimum salary for Exempt Salaried employees is $640/week ($455/week federal).
