  • salaried employee in GA

    I worked for a company in Georgia that typically reduces it's salaried employee's final paycheck to minimum wage, and am expecting the same thing to happen to mine. The owner would also reduce an hourly employees pay down to minimum wage if they left (with or without notice). Anyone know anything about this?

    Nothing in the law prohibits this action. In most states you would have to be notified of this policy before they could do it; however, I doubt that Georgia has such a requirement and even if they do, since you clearly know about it it's almost certainly legal.
    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.

      Yes, but if an exempt employee, the "minimum wage" must be the salaried minimum of $455/week, prorated to $91/day for a 5-day work week.
      I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
