The Company provides each eligible employee with vacation days. All employees are expected to use their vacation days within the year they were earned. Take a short trip, an extended weekend or pursue personal interests with the time you have earned. The Company feels this rest period will benefit you and your co-workers.
Vacation days are the same as vacation, sick and qualified FMLA leave; they do NOT take the place of Personal Days, Bereavement Leave, Birthday Leave, or Jury Duty. The other paid leave categories are explained in the following sections of the handbook.
Vacation days are awarded at the beginning of each person’s own hire anniversary date. The number of vacation days each employee earns depends on their own hire date, length of service and employment status.
