Re: Option Day?
I beleive we only have them in the Southern Region. It is part of a vacation package that allows you to take your option week in individual days and hours.
Option 1 = 5 consecutive days off paid at 58 hours for full-time and 29 hours for part-time.
Option 2 = 7 days extra pay and not take the time off. 58 hours for full-time and 29 hours for part-time.
Option 3 = 7 days in 1 day increments. These days will be paid for the first 7 days the employee does not work. The company tries to say that 5 of the days are sick days and the other 2 are personal holidays, but regardless, you get paid for the first 7 days you miss work.
As far as OTH. I believe this stands for "Option Hours", not "Other". The reason they do this is for the guy who needs to go to the doctor or something and misses say 4 hours of work and then comes in later or needs to go later in the afternoon. He is charged his 4 hours and gets paid for them. I don't think I have ever seen anyone take this route as far as the "OPH". They are usually not at work and the number drops by 8 hours for full-time and 4 hours for part-time.
