Hello again, Jack.The rule set forth by your accountant is the general rule and true in most situations. However, the U.S. Department of labor has set forth certain situations where an employer may dock a salaried employee's paycheck, even if they work for a partial week.One of these exceptions to the "no docking" rule involves a situation where an employee is absent from work for one or more full days for personal reasons, other than sickness or disability. Therefore, you would normally be permitted to dock an exempt employee's pay for full days in which they are absent due to vacation and they do not have accrued vacation days to cover the absence.Here is a link which summarizes the law on this issue:http://www.harriskaufman.com/salariedemployee-california.htm
