DOL Issues Opinion Letter on Sick Leave Plans

Sealrevnew_3 The Department of Labor has issued a new opinion letter discussing sick leave plans and exempt employees.  The DOL agrees that an employer may deduct pay, without jeopardizing the employee's except status, for "absences of one or more full days because of sickness or disability" before the exempt employee qualifies for the plan and "after the employee has exhausted his or her leave allowance thereunder."

For the entire opinion letter, see FLSA 2006-32.  Thanks to Rosario Vega Lynn, of the New Mexico Labor and Employment Law blog, for the heads-up.
