Not Paying Probationary Employees for Holiday Pay

Answered by: 

Question: 
Our Bank policy is not to pay probationary employees for holiday pay, citing this as an employee benefit, which probationary employees are not entitled to. I believe this is not correct and that these employees should be paid. Can you help me with this issue?
Answer: 

Wages are governed under both Federal and State employment laws. From a Federal perspective, if the employees are non-exempt, there is no requirement to pay them anytime they are not actually working. However, you need to be asking this question to an employment attorney in your State.
