Disciplinary suspension without pay of exempt employees.
I am reviewing our disciplinary procedures policy which currently includes a disciplinary step that "an employee may be suspended, as disciplinary action, without pay, for a period not to exceed ten (10) working days". I remember reading something awhile back that docking exempt employees for disciplinary reasons implies that they are non-exempt. Is this so? Should I revise our policies to read "with or without pay" to address exempt salary situations?
