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.
Not Paying Probationary Employees for Holiday Pay
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?
