[ Law & Ethics ] Open Question : Can you make deductions from a Salaried employee who has exhausted their PTO and is going out on short term disability leave?

1. Employee is Exempt Salaried
2. Located in NH
3. Paid Bi-weekly (every two weeks)
4. Company offers 7 hours of PTO each pay period, a total of 182 hours a year.
5. Employee has exhausted all PTO from absences in prior pay periods
6. Employee did not perform any work in current pay period
7. Short term disability begins on the 15th day (14 day elimination period)

From my understanding, the PTO qualifies as a bona fide sick leave plan, correct? And in this case, if the employee did not perform any work, and has exhausted the PTO, we can make salary deductions?

What if the employee worked a half day of one of the weeks in the pay period? Can you still make deductions?
