When Can I Dock Pay?

June 9, 2022by People First0

One of my supervisors didn’t show up for work because they partied too hard at a superbowl party.  Can I dock their pay?

There is a difference between whether that person is exempt or nonexempt under the Fair Labor Standards Act.  

They are the rules behind docking an exempt person’s pay? It’s critical to know that, and if you violate that, you can actually void the exempt status and that person then would have to be paid by the hour and overtime would apply.

Knowing these rules can keep you out of trouble.  Make sure you are making proper deductions to avoid costly penalties.

If you have more questions, I suggest consulting with an experienced HR professional.
