  • Unsure about CA exempt salary deductions

    The CA company I work for will pay for 3 days of sick leave annually. I am an exempt salaried employee and have used my sick leave allocation. We are payed on a weekly basis but I am unsure if I have been paid correctly for the following absence - can you help clarify?

    Last week I came into work for 1 hour and then went home sick for the rest of the day, I was also absent for a second day. I worked the remainder of that week as normal.

    As an exempt employee should I have been paid for 4 days and had the one full day absence deducted (given that I have no sick time left), or should I get paid for the whole week? My employer has deducted me for both days absence and I am not sure they can do this as I thought exempt employees where paid for any day in which they worked (regardless of the amount of hours).

    Can anyone clarify?

    You should have only been docked the one day, not the day in which you worked an hour.
