If your husband is truly an employee, he should be receiving his full salary, less any legal deductions for taxes, Medicare, etc. If he isn't, there had better be a r-e-a-l-l-y good reason for it, like contributing to the employer's stock option plan.
But even those can be risky if he works for a privately-held company. You and your husband (together) should speak to your financial advisor and an employment attorney to make sure this arrangement is on the up-and-up.
