Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
bereavement leave policy yes but just for my family side. I was there for the wake only and I work nights. no on the first question.. do I have a choice to use my one of my sick days to cover it?
so what would be the best questions to ask them? I don't see it fair to use a vacation day for something that was unexpected. im looking at policy book now and they say... in the event of a full-time employees parent,child,spouse,parent in law,sibling,grandparent or grandchild your entiled to max 3 working days off at reg. pay. If the case is use the vaction day I am better off just taking the other now... right.
I guess. my botXXXXX XXXXXne is since I'm salaried I should get paid no matter what in somes cases. I'm better off just being hourly then..Im' going to have to ask them what the companies benefits of being salaried are. I've been with them for almost three years but, starting to call the quits. especially that I work 56 hours in a four day work week.
No, that's not the law for salaried people.Legally, if you miss an entire day, you don't have to be paid for that day under the law.Furthermore, the FSLA doesn't have any comments on the use of vacation time, because vacation was not prominently used when that law was written.So, if a salary person misses 3 hours in a day, the law states that their time can't be reduced by 3 hours on their pay. However, the employer can reduce their vacation hours by 3 to offset that time they didn't work. What's truly horrible about that though is that you don't credited for hours over your normal that you work later that week.Again, I won't say it's fair, but that's the law.In truth, being salaried is really hardly any benefit to you at all. Mostly, the benefit is to the employer.I do wish that I could tell you differently, but I'm simply respecting you enough to be honest with you about the law here.
