  • Salaried Exempt holiday deduction Colorado

    Our company is closing the Friday after Christmas and the Friday after New Years. Can we legally deduct for the Fridays. Everyone will be paid for the 2 holidays. We put out a notice, informing the employees that they could use a vacation day, unless they choose to not be paid. Can we legally do this to the exempt employees. Also, if they do not have any accrued vacation time left, can we deduct the 8 hours.

    You can legally require that they use vacation or other paid leave, but if they are out of vacation they have to be paid for it anyway.
    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.

      Thank you, that is what I thought also. We had some discrepencies regarding this.

        Agreed. When the employer choose to make an employee Exempt Salaried, they also just choose to accept docking restrictions in exchange for the free overtime. Federal Exempt Salaried docking restrictions.
