Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
Yes, they may do this. The fact that it was not required of another employee would not change things as the law does not require employers to treat all employees exactly the same, or to be generally fair. You'd have to prove that you were targeted because of a legally protected trait such as race or religion, or that this was retaliation for having recently engaged in some sort of protected conduct, such as filing a wage claim or workers comp claim. Otherwise, while unfair, what you describe does not violate any laws.
I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.
If you do not require any further assistance, please be so kind as to provide a positive rating of my service so that I may receive credit for assisting you. Very best wishes moving forward.
If you have reason to believe a different standard is being applied to you BECAUSE of your race or ethnicity, you can file a discrimination complaint with the EEOC. It's not illegal to deduct PTO for a salaried employee's partial day absences, so that is not a matter you could pursue.
Again if there is anything more I can do for you just let me know. It's my pleasure....
Was there anything further I can do to assist you?
