  • Forced to take Leave - OH

    I work for a privately held company that has several DoD contracts. Recently, the contract to which I am assigned had a two-week lag between the time when the old contract expired and the new contract was signed. During this time, I was forced to take all my accrued leave and subsequently took several days leave without pay. As an exempt employee, is it legal to dock my pay when I was actually available for work?

    Yes, it is legal. They can reduce your pay for full days. For partial days, they can make up the difference with vacation and sick pay, unless there is a commitment that they would not do so. Your employer can permit you to take the accrued time off to make up missing pay for the full days. (It is not legally required for an employer to require you to do so.)
