salaried employee vacation time

Are you required under law to give a salaried employee vacation time. And if so, how much. There is no agreement or contract with the employee.

There is no state or federal law that would require you as an employer to give exempt employees paid vacation. This is a matter of company policy, not employment law.

However, you may want to give an exempt employee paid vacation. Studies show that an employee who takes up to 2 weeks vacation per year actually accomplishes more in 50 weeks than other employees do in 52 weeks. Vacations increase productivity. So it is in your best interest as an employer to permit an employee to take vacation.

In some states if the exempt employee has been promised paid vacations, that promise must be honored but that is not the case here. We assume that you are truly talking about vacation, and not medical leave or a short term disability.
