Docked for hours though salaried?

I am a salaried CIO. I get an hour here and there taken off my check because I quote "could not be found so assumed I was out sick" (which I was not and certainly could have been found) or I said I was taking the kids to school today or leaving early for my boys T-ball game or going to the doctors for whatever reason (usually to help my wife handle the kids while she is in the appt.) What happened to salaried "flex time" and family leave. Do you have to schedule stuff like that? I never seem to get the extra time I put in added to anything but they are sure to dock it as soon as they can.

you're right

you are correct, you may not be docked for partial day absences, even if you are out sick. you are entitled to all lost pay for the hours docked. in addition, your exempt status for the pay period(s) in question is in jeopardy, meaning you could be entitled to all daily and/or weekly overtime you worked during the pay period docked.
you should talk to an attorney experienced in employment law, and in particular in wage and hour law. you can find one in your area at the cal employment lawyers assn website, www.celaweb.org. i'm a little far from you but you're welcome to call for a free phone consultation.
good luck
