Interesting:

In most states, including Florida, private sector employers are not required to provide vacation, whether paid or unpaid, to employees. Therefore, employers have significant discretion in developing vacation and personal leave policies that best fit... —  read more

What they won’t answer about accruals

With the new PTO policy, you can never actually use the time you are eligible for. The only way to earn enough PTO in their new plan is to work a bunch of overtime. A person 1-5 years of service has to work 16.25 hours to earn 1 hour of PTO. ... —  read more

Vacation

Salaried were given our vacation information today. It’s not good! I predict an exit for greener pastures which shouldn’t be hard to find. Ask your salaried management 😏
