i am a 8 year employee and i was told that I will have 20 PTO days. My store manager said he was 99.9% sure of this as this was what he was told.

Basically, if you are like me, someone who gets 15 vacation days per year, you will get 20 now. So you lose 2 days compared to the old system.

The old system you got 15 vac days, 1 special holidy, and 6 sick days which means a total of 22 days you can take paid time off.

New system tranlates to 20 days. So its actually a great thing for people who dont call off all the damn time.

So basically if you are a gambling person,and are confident you wont get deathly ill you actually gain vacation time if you look at it one way.

but any smart person will still only use 15 days for vacation and bank the rest for sick/emergency.

I'm sorry Chicago. I wasn't really paying attention in the meeting and I threw the literature away. I basically came away with the same assessment as Comiskeybum. If you traditionally don't call off sick much, the new PTO program is a plus. Because you can take more days off without feeling guilty. However, if you are a sh*tbird that takes off every day you possibly can, then the new PTO program is probably a negative.

So how does that translate to what you currently have?
How many days do you get for what you currently have?

PTO. if you have 15 days vacation. You will now have 20 days PTO total. Half of sick days plus two additional. This was stated already.

Exactly what I was told. Here is a formula for everyone ok?

Number of vacation days you have now per year(not including special holiday)+ 5 = your yearly PTO days (not including any banked days)

Easy enough?

What happens if you have over a month of banked sick days? What becomes of those days once the new system is implemented?

You don't lose them but at the same time you can't use them as PTO days. They go into a reserve account and if you go on disability you will use your banked sick days first. You can use them ONLY if you are scheduled to go on disability.

the company just changed their mind about banked sick days in washington state....as of jan 1, we get access to three of our banked sick days. the rest are for disability. we had an announcement in compass. we also can take a week vacation as of jan1 even if we do not have banked vac.

Very cool. Do they count as sick days or PTO days? The rest is true though about getting 5 additional days correct?

Does anyone know what happens to banked PTO days when you terminate/retire? Accrued/banked vacation days are paid off to the employee. Sick days are not. What happens to PTO days? Paid off or forfeited?

EXAs don't lose pay and neither do mgts becoming asmt. Only problem is you will be bound by the NEW ASM rate which is much lower than current exa salary.
Honestly i could care less about that. I simply do not want to lose any money. If when I get promoted to full ASM and they tell me the starting pay is 40k with a bonus, whatever im cool with that. It is still a raise in pay.

In the email I received, it says it also includes holidays. If that is the case, 15 vacation days, 6 sick days, 1 special holiday, and 6 vacation days converted into 20 days doesn't seem that great.
What happens if ur out on surgery? Now u use 5 sick days, then go on disability. Wondering how that will work. Also, u can not use ur days right at Jan 1. You have to accrue them. So u better bank from the year prior if u want time off in January. A company never makes a decision for the better of the employees. Its always to better the company. Food for thought.

Now see I heard they were NOT taking away holiday pay.
