  • Exempt pay deductions California

    State & Federal law state that an exempt employee is to be paid their full salary for any work week in which they performe any work, regardless of days or hours worked. However California employers may deduct pay from an exempt employee who take a full day off work for personal reasons. I was out due to a personal family issue Monday - Wednesday and worked full days Thursday & Friday. I have no sick/vacation time accrued to use. Per California state law am I entitled to a full weeks pay or only for Thursday & Friday?

    Only for Thursday and Friday. You were off for personal reasons and had used up all your accrued time off.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      BTW, Patty's answer would be the same, given the same circumstances, in all 50 states.
      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.

        Agreed. I am including a pointer to the actual federal regulation on this.
