Clarifications on Salary Deductions due to absence from work

Post by ranie8799 on Sun Sep 12, 2010 8:38 pm

Dear Dave,

Good evening.

I just like to ask for some clarifications on below scenario(E-9 Visa):

* Company workdays is Monday to Saturday. Sunday work is overtime.

*Let's say last month, an employee took a leave of absence 1 day per week. Since we have 4 weeks per month, he was able to spend a total of 4 days leave.

* Due to the above, the employer deducted from employees monthly salary a total of 8 days last month.

In view of this, is it correct that the employer deducted a total of 8 days from his payroll with the explanation that he did not work 1 day per week including Sunday (which is supposed to be classified as overtime)?

Is the labor per day computations from Monday to Sunday? - meaning if we have 31 days per month:
ex: 1,000,000 (basic)/31(days) = 32,258 won per day

Can you please provide us a clear understanding on this aspect on deductions if employee took a leave of absence.

Thank you very much and more power.

Sincerely yours,
