PAYMENT DEDUCTION ON PROBATIONARY EMPLOYEE

IF YOU HAVE AN EMPLOYEE THAT HAS BEEN HIRED AS A SALARY EMPLOYEE AND HAS ONLY WORKED IN YOUR OFFICE FOR 1 MONTH, AND IN THE FIRST 2 WEEKS HAS MADE A REQUEST TO BE OFF ONE DAY (SHE IS STILL IN 90 DAY PROBATION). SHE AGREED TO WORK 1/2. IS IT OK, SINCE SHE HAS NOT EARNED ANY BENEFITS YET TO DEDUCT 1/2 A DAY WAGES FOR NOT WORKING THE FULL DAY?

Salary is . . . Salary

You should pay her entire salary irrespective of hours worked or make her an hourly employee. You can't switch back and forth. A better question is whether you should have made her a salaried employee -- a classification that is limited to only certain types of employees. . . but that is beyond the scope of your question.
