Deductions To An Exempt Employee’s Salary
You know deductions to an exempt employee’s salary are limited under federal and sometimes state law. You have an exempt employee who quit in the middle of a workweek. The employee states you must pay her for the entire week.
How should you handle this issue?
You must pay the employee for the entire week.
During the initial or terminal week of employment an individual’s pay may be reduced to reflect days actually worked.
You are not required to pay any portion of the week since the employee ended employment in the middle of a workweek.
