Q. I have a salaried employee who used all his vacation and sick time. He is allowed a total of 21 days and has used 22, but he wants to take more vacation in November and is always sick (so he’ll probably be out more). Can I deduct his pay if he’s out more?

Employees who have disabilities and may need accommodations don’t have to use their organization’s formal process to make requests.
