My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: California
We have some salaried non-exempt employees, and some salaried exempt employees. If we take the week of Christmas as an example here, with Christmas falling on a Tuesday:
Can we legally tell the salaried non-exempt employees that they will be paid for the holiday 8 hours, plus additionally any actual hours they work on that day, but tell the salaried exempt employees that they'll only get the 8 hours of holiday pay, regardless of whether they work or not? Aren't both classes salaried and therefore must be treated the same? If the firm decides that it wants to pay the salaried non exempt employees for the actual time, doesn't the same apply to the salaried exempt employees? Do their actual job titles play any role in this?
Thanks in advance for the advice.
