Can anyone share what your company policies are when an employee moves from part time status to full time status in regards to vacation accruals. How do you determine the amount of time that person should get. Also, what if a person moves from full time status to part time status. Do you pay out part of their vacation time? Do they use it or lose it? Do they get half paid out and the other half they keep to use for when they need time off. We have had several employees who have moved from full time to part time and each case has been handled on an individual basis. We would like to set up a policy that is fair to both the employee and the company. It should only be an issue during the transition year from one status to the other. If a full time employee has 120 hours of vacation time and then they go to a 20/hr work week as a part time person, how would your organization handle this. We do not have PTO time. If we did maybe that would make a difference but I am not sure. Vacation and personal days are earned by years of service. Part time employees working 24 - 37.5 hours earn vacation based on the prior years average hours worked. Any insight would be appreciated.
