5th yr PTer. We're typically a Tues-Sat. Operation. I filled out my vacation/personal days/option wk days request back on January of 2018 for the four days after christmas. They were approved late January. First paycheck in December they were apparently 'cashed' out. Red flag #1. By December the 22nd, I was ready for a nice 10-11 day vacation after going 13-14 days straight. So I wasn't totally focused on much else. I know my supplement reads you need to work one day during that holiday week or have monies earned. Obviously I was under the impression that the option days would cover the monies earned but apparently I was just scheduled off. I do have a voicemail from my boss that he would be putting me down for Saturday the 29th as an option day from Friday the 28th. 'Putting me down' vs what payroll sees are two different things I've noticed. It's obviously my responsibility to know exactly what I have from here on out. I also know the supplements have different cash out periods. I feel I could've just used a 'sick' day on any of those days and would have had Christmas pay. Just sitting here kind of sad and mad as the holiday pay would've covered union dues. I'm also frustrated because for me to have health insurance, I need to have one regular day per week 'earned'. So apparently the week I was out traveling for Christmas, I wasn't covered since it was all scheduled off. Worth the hassle over four Pt hours? Or learn from it for next time?
