My understanding is that you will get whatever your 15days prorated is (if you left May 1st that would be 5 days prorated) minus any days taken. So using the May 1st example again, if you had used 3 days you would be paid for 2 of your remaining 12 vacation days (5-3=2).

. Go to aisle 3 get some ky an get ready to drop your drawers your screwed. Sick time is not paid vacation is paid as 1/12 for each full month since jan 1st. I would come down with a good case of kismyasswalgrewnsosis this week if you are low man on totem pole.

WaGEXA is correct. Forget about sick days. I wonder why anyone ever thinks they will get paid for sick days not used. The sick days benefit is simply an insurance sort of policy in case you do get sick.

Any smart employee will take all their vacation days and sick days before quitting.

I'm using them all up in the month of March and going to visit my friend at his condo in South Florida :)

5 days or more of sick days in a row requires you to go on medical leave with dr verification, fyi...

on the 6th day missed you must have seen a physician and submitted a paid sick leave application, sick days are for the one or two day illnesses not long term illness or injury

Having a drs note is mgrs discretion, leave of absence is mandatory after 5 days...

I was with the company for 5 years. Was told by my SM that I could get my 15 vacation days prepaid but would have to work a shift every month for the calendar or would have to pay them back. Not his fault but as usual no knowledge on policies. Not even corporate knew the answer. They are all the worst at least in my district. Anyway did some investigating and found out I did not have to work, nor did I have to pay them back if I was to leave all together. When I found that out I terminated all together. When my store manager called the person I spoke to she says wow, she knew how to screw us. Guess what screw you! I earned those days. I am not like your friendly pharmacists who come late,leave early and are dr. detailing all the time. You do not get your sick days. If you enrolled in Profit Sharing you cannot roll that over to your new employee unless you leave all together. Walgreens screws you or at least tried to screw me but not anymore. So thrilled to be done with that company. Wouldnt refer anyone to work for them. All your hard work goes unnoticed and you are not appreciated unless you are a pet of the SM. Not 1 employee in my store is happy there.

Typically in a reduction in force scenario, you will get 50% of your accrued vacation and no sick days. At least that is how it went down back in 2008-09 with the last round of reduction in force. If I were you...I would plan on taking a vacation, and then have several sick days before being let go....will give you time to look for a job and get paid while doing it.

My last day was mid February and I had 10 days total, minus one day used. I got paid for one day on my final check. That might give you some idea on how it will divide in the end.

I have been out sick twice without sick days, when I returned with a doctor's note, I was written up. I am currently out with a severely sprained ankle which the SM forced me to leave work and go to the doctor for. In result, I am out of work. She stated that because she made me leave she wouldn't write me up but if I was out again, I wouldnt have a job. I go to the doctor tomorrow morning and I have filed FMLA. Can she legally write me up once I have submitted a doctors note to her in all cases?

No. To write you up while you're on FMLA is a violation of federal law. You may want to call Employee Relations on the other write ups since you had doctor's notes. Sick days or not, they shouldn't be writing you up if you have doctor's notes.

If you used all your sick days you can be written up for excessive abscences, however if you are granted FMLA, then the previous post is correct.

Before when I didn't have sick days I was only out a day or two at the most, therefore i wouldn't have to have FMLA for those times, I would only have to have it since I've sprained my ankle severely. For the other times that I was wrote up, WHILE UNDER A DOCTOR'S NOTE, can she do that?

Yes, a Doctor's note shows you sought care, but attendance is part of the job, if you are unable to be there consistently how is the manager supposed to schedule? That being said as long as the manager applies this consistently it is fair. Unfortunately people sometimes use their sick days as a day off and when they truly need them they are not there to be used. This probably isn't what happened in your case, but I have seen it numerous times. If you have used all of your sick days you need to find a way such as FMLA or disability to keep your job. It sounds harsh, but if everyone just used sick days without cause and then still took time off it would be impossible to schedule for the needs of the store. Sorry that you are going through this and good luck.
