For full time employees, you start by earning 2 weeks vacation and 2 weeks sick leave plus you get paid holidays including from Dec 23 to Jan2 (depending on the calendar...we did have to come in one day once before Jan 1st because of how the days fell)... if you work part time the holiday pay is based on the number of hours you work. (Not sure this is true for people working through CDS...like pca, personal support, parental pay, etc..., you'd need to call and see.)

Work days and hours depend on the department or position you work for. For an exact answer ask HR. The center based people mostly only work M to F, day hours and get paid their hourly rate (part time is pro-rated) when off for holidays. Most big holidays are off.... Thanksgiving+Friday after, labor day, July 4th, etc. There are some common holidays we don't get off, like mlk day. .. but mostly, over the past many years, those days are put toward over a week off in winter (like dec 23 to jan 2). All of those days are paid, not from your PTO/vacation/sick pay. (Things can always change so ask HR) If you work in some.of the administrative jobs like payroll, etc. , or CDS (like pca, personal support) things are different so check with HR.for specifics.

Im not an expert but do work directly with individuals who choose piece rate work and earn sub minimum wages for at least part of their days. I am also a parent of an adult son with disabilities. Many clients at MRCI do get paid minimum wage or higher if they work at community sites or are directly hired by a company and supported by staff who coach them, etc. That is often the goal and we work to get that for any client who wants it. Many clients do a bit of both. The clients who choose the piece rate job options, are clients who want to work in a center based setting for a variety of reasons, and they get not only their pay (which can be up to minimum wage if they work to that level) but also receive the staff support that they are seeking. It is an option the individual and their team choose to do. MRCI doesnt force people to do this option. Often this choice gives people who do not want , or cannot do community jobs due to physical limitations, mental health conditions, behavioral support needs, etc., it's a way to be able to earn some money and feel productive. What they do is important and by working on a team with others they are able to do full jobs they otherwise wouldn't or couldn't do alone.
