Generally, employers can deduct exempt employee’s pay when the employee is absent from work for one or more full days for personal reasons. If the exempt employee works any portion of these days, then they need to be paid for the entire day.
Please note, situations like these can become more complicated depending on the laws in the state the employee works in and if the employee’s injuries occurred at work. In order to make sure the company handles this properly; I would advise consulting your compliance team. In addition to this, Zenefits has an Advisory Team that can also review your options in this specific situation. You can find additional information on our team in the article linked below:
