    "Live check" is the key here. That means no direct deposit. I've heard of a few guys who have misplaced their "live checks".

    You should be given an option to carry them over or get paid off for them. In our building though accounting always seems to accidentally pay guys off for them.

    I'm also told that if you carry over days, when you finally decide to use that day you will get paid for that day at the rate which you had earned that sick day. So in 2012 if you were able to use a day you earned in 2008 you would get paid at your 2008 rate.

    We can get up to 400 hours built up and any over that is paid out. When you leave it is paid out to you. Most drivers seem to use it as fast as it builds up. I only know of two who have ever maxed out their hours and received a check for the extra hours.

    So if you save up your sick days can you take off 50 days in a row? Or is that different from option days? I don't think i have anything saved up so it doesn't matter but i'm just curious.

    Loufan, if you have a medical illness, UPS will allow you to use your sick days to cover your expenses. It requires documentation though from your doctor. You can't use them as a 10 week vaca...nice as that would be :happy-very:

    This sounds like it could get awful confusing for payroll. Especially for someone who has accumulated a lot of days over the period of a few years. It seems like a great option, however it would never work for me I burn all my days every year.:knockedout:

    Some people just don't have a life. I use all my sick days and personal days and more each year. As long I get my 1800 credit hours for my pension I good to go. When you retire your not going to get a bonus or even a attaboy for not calling out UPS is just going to kick you out the door like everyone else.

    I would like to have the option of donating unused sick days to an employee out for an extended period of time due to a serious illness or off-the-job injury.

    We are not allowed to carry over sick days and are paid for any unused sick and/or personal days on or around Dec. 15th.

    I am like Johney--I run out of days before I run out of year.
