Leap Year Day -- Did you get paid?

I was reading some news online, and I discovered something that might make a few salary pay employee's angry.

You see, since today is a leap year day, and is not considered a normal 365 day (by most contracts), you might have not been paid today. Might make your head think, but this is true. And unless you have a special clause for leap year days in your contract, it is basically ok for them to not pay you.

Now I'm sure that you would get paid, but well, or not. Not sure how a lawsuit would do.

Anyways, be sure to ask your employer about this. And naturally, hourly/commission workers won't be affected by this, as they get paid by the hour or how many items they sell.
