Annual Leave - Fair Labor Standards Act

Time Away From Work

View Official Policy: Annual Leave Fair Labor Standards Act Policy

When an exempt employee is absent from work for less than one (1) scheduled workday and his/her accumulated leave is insufficient to cover the partial day of absence, the employer will:

  1. deduct the cost for such leave in hourly increments from an exempt employee’s salary; or
  2. place the exempt employee on leave without pay.

Such action by the employer will not disqualify the exempt status of the employee’s position (29 CFR 541.5d).
