LindsayJParticipantI think I might need more information, but I’ll try to help you as much as I can. If you’re saying that you work 12 hours a day 5 days a week, that means you work approximately 60 hours a week. When you receive 4 weeks of vacation time based on 60 hours a week, you’ll have to multiply your hours by the amount of weeks you receive vacation. That would be: 60 hours X 4 weeks = 240 vacation hours. You technically should receive 240 hours of vacation hours over the course of one year.

The FLSA doesn’t have policies regarding vacation time, so your company’s PTO/vacation policy is up to your employer. Your employer can technically change your time off from “vacation” to “PTO” at any point. My employer combines vacation and sick time into “PTO”, and it’s actually great because I can use my time off for vacation or sick time– i’m not limited in each category. I like the freedom!

Simon G LittleParticipantAn ordinance was recently enacted regarding sick time in our area. In our company salaried employees have always been allowed to take time off when they are sick absences. We don’t mind since they work extra time to ‘catch up’ when they return. When this type of employee takes sick time off, should we deduct the time a sick leave accrual bank, or should we just continue to allow employees to take time off as needed?

Honestly, I think one is like having a policy for sick time that you stick to, and the other is having a policy that you can take as much time as you need, so long as you make it up. I guess I’m wondering if anyone has any thoughts on which policy, in general, would be better, and why?00
