To cut costs, can we simply say, ‘Don’t come to work’?


Q: “Is it legal to ask management staff (who are exempt) to take voluntary unpaid full days off, say one or two a month, for a few months as a cost control action? My understanding is that unpaid full days off do comply with the FLSA and will not put in jeopardy the exemption status of the jobs.” – John, Ohio
