The policy promotes personal responsibility. There is nothing preventing an employee from exploring solutions to tardiness with their supervisor. Bottom line is you are hired and paid to provide a service for your employer. Your employer is not responsible and has nothing to do with issues in your personal life. That is for the employee to manage. I’ve never understood individuals who think their personal circumstances should allow them special privileges or release them from employment obligations.

PTO Is used for vacation, sick time, and holidays at nonunion site. It is very hard to come by and even harder to retain.

Report answer

You earn PTO which is for both vacation time and sick time at .65 FTE you earn just over .09 days per pay. You can take vacation whenever you some coming if no one else is taking vacation at that time. You are allowed three sick occurances every six months. Unfortunately that also ties in with being tardy, so if you're a minute late that counts against how often you can call in sick. Yes you read it right, one minute late. It's a bad system because it doesn't promote conversation between the employee and the supervisor to find out why people are calling in sick or late frequently. Is. it because of coworker problems, scheduled at had a bad location for them, personal time conflict, serious illness. Supervisors are not encouraged to watch for patterns of sick/tardy and rectify the problems, seeing how they can help their employees deal with situations for better attendance.
