You have to earn your paid time off, vacation and sick days, before you take it off or call in. Otherwise you get a point. 3 points you could possibly be fired.
It's pretty standard. 120 hours of PTO per year.
PTO is accrued. Employees with 1-5 years can accrue 3 weeks PTO. You can accrue an additional week every 5 years with a max of 6 weeks.
You don't have a bank of hours anymore so it is hard to have the argument that you haven't taken enough time off seeing that nothing is tracked.
Pro-rated vacation time your first year, then automatic 80 hours after your first full year.
PTO is accrued for the next year by what you work. So if you take a lot of time off you wont gain much for the next year. You start out pro rated until you reach the next calendar year.
I'm paid hourly for a position that would normally be salaried. I work 50-60 hours per week but when I take vacation I am only paid 8 hours per day. Basically every time I take a day off I take a pay cut.
Worse thing is not being paid for unused vacation time.
