  • Florida Salaried Employee Forced to use Vacation Time When Office Closed

    I am a salaried professional working for a large corporation. Our office is routinely closed for Thanksgiving. However, because there was very few patients scheduled for the following Friday, the decision was made to close the office. I had not planned to be off this Friday and had plenty of work to do in the local nursing homes seeing patients as a nurse practitioner. However. I was told that even though I was ready and willing to work on this day, that I could not because the large corporation I worked for would have to pay my time and 1/2 if if were to work on a day the office was closed. We do have a paid time off/vacation time in place where I work. Is this within the rules for exempt employees?

    There is no federal nor Florida law that prohibits the employer from forcing an employee to utilitze vacation pay when they decide to close on a workday, even if you had planned to work it.
