Discussion #1

Question # 1. My organization has no affiliations with Buckingham Adult Day Care. But we do allow up to 30 days paid FMLA to deal with sick/dying family members (including parents who may live in an assisted living center such as Buckingham) per year. Anymore would have to be unpaid days off. Besides this, there is no Paid Time Off Bank or PTO bank for them. Each employee (based on length of service) is allotted anywhere from 1.5-4 weeks of paid vacation a year, as well as 3 personal days. The vacation and personal leave days can be used after each new employee passes through their 90 day probationary period and the days can be used every calendar year (as long as approved by supervisor with at least two weeks' notice).. The exception would be sick days. Each employee is granted 5 of these paid days after the 90 day probationary period has been successfully completed by the employee. These benefits cannot be rolled over.
