  • Have to claim timeoff when salary in Wisconsin

    Hello-I work for an employer in Wisconsin and I am salary-exempt. I also work oncall outside of normal work hours and work a lot of hours, 10 to 15 hours of overtime per oncall period. If we had a doctors appointment or something that couldn't be done outside of work hours like a teacher's conference, we did not have to claim this time against our vacation or personal time. If we went home sick and it was less than half a day, we didn't have to claim it against sick time. Now some managers have announced that any time we are gone we have to claim against vacation, sick, or personal time, yet some managers have kept the previous policy. It seems to be asking a lot to put in tons of extra hours up and above 40 hours and still have to claim small bits of time against our vacation, sick, or personal time pay. Thanks!

    I agree with you that it's petty. However, it's not illegal.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
