My employer sent a memo out today that we are required to take Dec 24 off. Offices are closed. And Salaried employees are required to either use PTO or take an unpaid day. I am am not yet eligible for PTO, was planing to work that day, but am now forced to take an unpaid day. Also, if I am salaried and don't have any PTO, can my employer deduct a half day for going home sick after 4 hours? The policy here is if you are Salary, you have to work at least 5 hours a day to get a full day pay, otherwise, you have to take unpaid or paid time off. For any reason. This is not what I understood Salary to mean. Also, days when I have worked, checked email from home, etc, I did not get paid, and yet working over 40 hours in other weeks, I get no overtime, because I am 'salaried'? This okay?
