“If I am terminated for cause, can accumulated leave time and comp time be denied me?”

Sklover Working Wisdom

Over the course of my employment I have accumulated significant “leave time” and “comp time” that, under normal circumstances, and according to the Leave Manual would be given to me in a lump sum upon separation. However, there is a fundamental difference between “comp time” and “leave time” when that rule is applied. . Leave Time (or Vacation Time) is very different; it is not a form of wages, but rather a benefit that is not required by law.

Retaining the Hourly Employee

Workology

Of course, it’s a factor and everyone’s got to make a living but many hourly positions are within a few dollars of minimum wage. Provide personal leave options for people to pursue other interests. Structure your workforce so its widely accepted to take an unpaid personal leave to travel on a band tour. Let them leave and take a break, they will quickly realize how good they had it.

updates: the incompetent temp, the person who lacked ambition, and more

Ask a Manager

I am now leaving my current job and will be returning to my home country in August. Several interviewers mentioned how strong my cover letter had been and how they got a real sense of my personality and unique professional interests from it. I was anticipating having to take a salary cut due to teaching wages in my home country being lower than where I currently work but I actually got a small increase compared to what I’m earning now – and with shorter working hours!

sharing resumes with coworkers, should I have to plan a going-away party for my cubicle mate, and more

Ask A Manager

It’s absolutely fine to share information about applicants, including their resumes, with others within your organization; in fact, it’s common practice in many companies to share them within your department, or with other departments who might have an interest in a particular candidate, or to share the resume of the new hire with your whole team before the person starts. I have sat next to this person for nearly 2 years, and yes we talk a lot and have laughs.

salaried employees and missed days: when do they have to be paid?

Ask A Manager

Alabama, Connecticut, Colorado, Massachusetts and New York appear to have requirements that all or part of the juror’s wages be paid during jury duty. You can also apply the employee’s sick leave/PTO time if they have any. Deductions for such full-day absences also may be made before the employee has qualified under the plan, policy or practice, and after the employee has exhausted the leave allowance thereunder.

manager blocked internal move, salary when moving to part-time, and more

Ask a Manager

I recently made a request at my job to move from a full-time schedule to a part-time one, due to some personal and medical issues that need more of my attention. Should I have a number in mind for an hourly wage, and is it reasonable for that number to be slightly higher that the hourly wage I’m receiving now, since I will no longer be eligible for benefits or PTO? This person’s line manager has refused to release them from their current position.
