Q. Our front-line supervisors often fill in for vacationing nonexempts. Do such duties jeopardize their exempt status during the weeks they substitute for the vacationing employees? — Barbara, Ohio
A. Probably not. Managers are expected to step up to the plate and fill in. The better course of action is to spread vacationing employees’ work throughout the department. That way, managers won’t have to take on more than a minimal amount of extra work.
