Vacation for Exempt Salaried Employee

If you have exempt salaried employees, and the business is only open 1/2 day such as Christmas Eve, and that employee decides to take the whole day off, is that employee only required to take 1/2 day vacation since the business is only open part of the day?

No, many employers would require that this employee use a full 8 hours of PTO or vacation time.

Under the federal FLSA, when the salaried exempt employee works part of the day, the employee must be paid for the full day. However, the law does not address how PTO or vacation is used. It is a matter of company policy. Many companies would permit the employee to use just 4 hours of vacation or PTO, while others would count the days absence as 8 hours of vacation.

Also note that many companies are open the usual hours on Christmas Eve, and a few may even be open later than normal.
