Re: temporarily closed shop and unpaid leave
Hello. I am an employer. Last month my shop was temporarily closed for 1 week (which I had notify my employee a month ago about such closure) and I gave unpaid leave for my employee.
In the end of the month, I only pay 3 week salary for my employee since he was not working during the closure week. Now my employee filed a complain with the Labor Department.
Am I wrong in this case? Will I be sued? If I ran into the same situation next time, should I just deduct the non-working week from the employee's annual leave?
Please advise. Thank you
