Answer Michael - If you are a salaried exempt employee, you are entitled to your salary for however many days or hours you work in a week. As a manager, it is likely that you are salaried exempt. What you get in terms of time off should have been addressed in your contract. Do you have a copy of it? Check what it says, but as a salaried exempt employee you are not entitled to overtime. Nothing in the federal regs and nothing in most state regs requires that employers provide paid time off to employees, so you have nothing to go on but your contract.
