At the request of a reader, I’m asking you all to throw your two cents in.
Situation: Jane works as a salaried exempt full-time employee (5 days a week, 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week)for a small company for 10 years. On her 10th year anniversary, she is awarded an additional 5 days of vacation, so now has 15 days of vacation.
After reaching this milestone, Jane has an adorable baby and wishes to spend more time with her offspring. With her boss’s blessing, Jane drops her hours to 32 hours per week by staying home on Mondays. Now she works 4 days a week, 8 hours a day, 32 hours a week.
The current company policy is:
- 5 days of vacation for 0-4.999 years
- 10 days of vacation for 5-9.999 years
- 15 days of vacation for 10-14.999 years
- 20 days of vacation for 15 years and more.
Jane is the only part-time employee in the company. How many vacation days should Jane receive?
(Based on company policy, mind you, not based on what you think is the morally correct amount of vacation.)
