RE: Employee vacation schedules

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Yes, had me going for a while too.  I think the employer needs to be a little “kinder and gentler” to his employee.  Hard to do though.  I was supposed to be off all day today, so my wife and I could get on the road early for Thanksgiving, but where am I?  Of course, in the office finishing up some work.

Hi all. While I lived in England I received 4 weeks holiday of which 2 weeks could be carried over, plus public holidays and comp time. On my return here, I got 2 weeks, no carry over, no comp time. Never got better than that for the past 14 years. My current employer allows no time off whatsoever, not even sick leave.
