Do I have to pay an employee, or as an employee, do I have to be paid, if operations are closed?

FAQ Answer

A non-exempt employee does not have to be paid if no work was performed.  Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), an exempt employee is entitled to receive their regular salary if they are “ready, willing and able to work,” but no work was available. https://www.dol.gov/agencies/whd/fact-sheets/70-flsa-furloughs
