  • NC - Docking PTO on Exempt employees

    As a displinary action for a vialoting a company policy. Can an employer dock the employees Paid Time Off (PTO), instead of docking a days pay and having to reimburse it out of the PTO bank?
    In other words still work the employee, but dock his PTO bank?

    So the employer is taking away "X" number of vacation days as a disciplinary measure? That's an unusual measure but I can't think of anything that would make that illegal in your State.

      Dang, are there any laws that protect the employees rights any longer???

      Doesn't seem like it.

        There are plenty of laws that protect employee rights. PTO is not a right. The law does not protect PTO.

        And this thread is over two years old.
        The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

          Sorry about it being an old thread.

          Didn't know there was a time limit on these things.
