Exempt and PTO not yet accrued
I've read many threads but can't pinpoint an answer to this...
Our exempt status EEs earn PTO after 1 year. Up to that point, if they work 4 days/week and call off sick day #5, are we required to pay them for that day since they are exempt? (Ohio)
My mgr usually pays them since the are "salaried." But on the other hand, we have an EE who has used all his accrued PTO plus an additional amount of days off that he was paid for, but now any more days he takes off is "not to be paid." There has not been a 'limit' set but mgr says it's running into the "abused" state.
Why have PTO (and go through the burden of 'keeping track') if we are going to pay them anyway!?
Thanks for any comments!
