For example, the answers to these most commonly asked questions are included in this essential resource:

* Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, may I dock an employee's pay as a disciplinary penalty?
* Can we deduct half day from an exempt employee's pay when they are out half a day due to personal reasons and have exhausted all their paid time off?
