Holiday Pay = not paid? (ALL FIXED)
TheRoadVirusI am a birdLook at my feathersRegistered Userregular
Ok so I started a new job in.... June? July? something like that. Anyway, I'm a salaried employee, etc. etc.
Now, upon the agreement when I signed up, I'd be making 24k a year (not much, i know.)
Well, I started work on a Tuesday. First paycheck rolls around, and they docked my check a day for not having worked that day. I figured whatever, and rolled with it.
Now, the business was CLOSED on labor day. Completely closed, company wide. It's on our yearly work holiday list, with the words "holiday" next to it. The way I was told, holidays we all get paid for. Some, like Christmas, have a PTO holiday right after, which means that the store will still be closed, but in order to get paid for that off day, you have to use PTO time. Labor day is just listed as a regular holiday. Which means I shouldn't have to use PTO time in order to get paid. I check my paycheck today, and it shows me as being a day short. I ask the HR lady, and she says she had to short me a day because I'm not eligible for holiday pay yet.
Is this legal? I'm completely confused. I thought salary meant I was paid x amount per check no matter what. Apparently I'm misinformed?
