I have an exempt HR Manager within her 90 days probationary

Customer: what information do you need?
JA: Anything else I can tell the Employment Lawyer before I connect you two?

JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Employment Lawyer about your situation and connect you two.

I hope this message finds you well, present circumstances excluded. I am a licensed attorney with over a dozen years of employment law experience. It is a pleasure to assist you today. Since she is an exempt employee, you have the option of not paying her, since she is salaried, but within the 90 day probationary period, wherein you have established policy and precedent that you are not allowed time off. You need to notify her in writing (email is fine) if you grant this leave request that pursuant to the policy in the 90 day probationary period, she will be docked for the hours of work she misses on that day. The reason to document is nothing more than to protect yourself down the line. Let me know if you have any other questions or comments. Please also rate my answer positively (three or more stars) so I can receive credit for my response. Best wishes going forward!
