Can a motion and approval be made in a meeting to a general item and then specifics be voted on in Executive Session? For example, approve hiring of individuals during the regular meeting and then going into executive session for approving specific individual salaries.

Generally, in accordance with the current edition of Robert's Rules of Order, Newly Revised, the answer is - yes. However, depending on other factors outside of what is contained in RONR, the answer may be no. Depending on the type of organization you're referencing, governmental, private, ect., there may be other legal concerns. Ask a lawyer if your type of organization is obligated to follow any open meetings laws in your location. We don't do legal in this forum.
