Payroll Practices; More on the salary basis

Posted by Mike Bourgon on Sun, Sep 28, 2008

There have been a number of recent cases where employers whee held to be in violation of the statute where an employer allowed a salary docking or otherwise treated an exempt employee in a manner inconsistent with salary exempt status.

In these cases, scores of employees could be found to be non-exempt and entitled to unpaid overtime and other types of damages.

Situations such as payroll docking, hourly rate payments and allowing partial days off are only a few of the payroll practices that could get an employer into trouble and cause an exempt employee to become an hourly employee.
