[Histonet] time off

Hi Amber,

I have a Holiday Rotation List that I use for my staff.  I started the
list off with "seniority", but then everytime a tech uses PTO around a
holiday (either before or after), they go to the bottom of the list for
that holiday.  This ensures that all techs have a chance to take off and
it's equal for everyone.

There are some techs that ask for holidays every year, but I post the
holiday rotations and they know they might not get it.  Even though they
asked 6 months in advance, they have to wait to see if the techs at the
top of the list will be utilizing PTO for that particular holiday.  If
not, they can have it off... And then go to the bottom of the list

I update the rotation list every year and post it... It's helped a lot
with holiday fairness.  I can send you the form if you would like...
Just so you can see what I'm talking about.

Hope this helps,

Those of you who are supervisors, how do you handle your co-workers
asking for time off?  I have 2 employees that have asked off already
(jan 3rd) for every day they want off for the entire year!  Do you grant
them the days off since no one else has asked off yet, or tell them it's
not fair to continuously get off around every holiday by asking off  5 -
12 months in advance?
