Deducting from exempt employee pto bank
We currently have a time keeping policy that requires exempt employees to log hours worked (yes, this was approved by our labor attorney). Since implementing this policy many employees have become disgruntled when expected to deduct hours from their PTO bank for taking a day off or partial day off when they have actually worked in excess of 40 hours throughout the week. This is, of course, no surprise.
First, is it legal to deduct from a PTO bank when an exempt employee has already worked 40 hours. Second, any recommendations on how to abolish such an absurd policy?
