News From the Virtual HR Desk:
Transitioning to a Paid Time Off System

The new standard for vacation days is the Paid Time Off system. This new process has become the norm with most major companies and can be managed if you’re well informed. Employers are constantly working on validating sick days and delegating vacations days. With this system, all available days are put together and evenly distributed to all full time eligible employees.

This information has been provided by Nancye Combs, President and CEO of H.R. Enterprises. To get direct access to more from Nancye, login to the Members Only Section and head to the Virtual HR Desk.
