Re: “Do You Feel Sick?

55 days off, or of vacation? 18 sick days? Plus holidays? I'm guessing 10?

That's about 83 days off....out of a total of 261 workdays, minus 10 holidays = 251 "workable" days. 83 days off is equivalent of 33% time off. Despicable!

And contrary to what Neondragon says, writing off the massive sick time banks would save significant money. Another way of saving is for employees to stop accruing sick pay if they have over x hours in their bank. In other words, going forward you can't rollover sick time above 200 hours and won't accrue again until you drop below that amount.

That is what my company did.....and we lowered the "new" sick time accrual per year to like 6 days. Doesn't affect me, because I don't miss more than a couple of sick days a year.....but that's how things are going in the "real world."
