  • Salaried Non-Exempt Tennessee

    OK...I am a salaried employee, Non-Exempt where I can either receive pay for my overtime or build up comp time.
    I am paid bi-weekly and required to fill out a time sheet.
    There was an instance where I left 2 hours early, but put on my time sheet a full day.
    HR has sent me home for a day with NO PAY!

    Is there something Im missing here? I was occused of "stealing time". Is that time not mine? Doesnt a salaried employee get paid a set amount regradless hours worked?

    Any information would be great!

    Well, not quite. Salaried, EXEMPT employees are required to be paid at least a set amount on a weekly basis regardless of hours worked. Since you are non-exempt, you are entitled, by law, to be paid for all the time you work.

    By your statement, you checked out a couple of hours early, and reported on a company document that you worked all day. By some definitions, apparently including that of your employer, that is "stealing time". It would seem that the employer considers time for which you are paid to be their time, not yours. I have fired people for that.

    There may be an issue with you receiving comp time in lieu of time worked (overtime?), but since you did not question that, I won't try to treat with it.

      I agree with Texas709 that comp time for nonexempt is not legal.

      Even for an salaried exempt employee, they can be docked if they are suspended for gross misconduct.
