Offer it, but don't honor it. Employees have waited literally MONTHS after submitting a request to receive either an approval or denial (usually denial.) It is usually when they catch wind of a possible class-action lawsuit that they'll go through and quickly make a bunch of approvals.
The different types of paid time off has really helped me to have a pretty good work/life balance.
Vacation policy was changed on several employees and then no longer able to accrue 3 weeks after 2 years. That is not how to treat employees. You can not carry over vacation time, nor can you use a sick day for a doctor's appointment. They need to take a good hard look at their policies, why they have them, and how they affect staff. Treat people well, and your company will reap the rewards of that.
No comment. I never used the vacation benefits because I was able to switch hours with other staff.
My vacation time and sick time accrues very quickly, and I am able to use it on short notice (within a few days of when I need it).
Accumulates very fast, vacation and sick time rolls over to next year.
get time to use but no time to use it
You accrue time off, but they seldom approve your request. They block out optimal times to take off ie: Children's school breaks, all major holidays and they have some equation that only allows 2% of the entire AREA you are in to have off. Its impossible to get time off approved in an emergency. They make you submit in January for April, May and June. DORs have no authority to grant your time off although they do submit for their Buddies to get approved first.
The staff is very encouraging of vacation time.
Unable to use PTO. DENIED< DENIED< DENIED. Asked to stay home unpaid when census is low.
