(we all started at 0 hours in 2012)
I took 5 vacation days the first year. At my anniversary I was at 60 hours ( Aug 24). I could not put in for payment. 2013 - On 8/22 I had 185.54 I submitted a letter to receive payment for 1 week's pay and a list of dates to take vacation on the 22nd after discussing this with Management. . I was told I was denied and the clock would be locked at 120. I would receive payment for 40 hrs. to take me to 80 and i would loose 68.62. I am the only one with a lock. 2 other employees received their time. I know this because I am the HR person. I was told to lock the clock on all employees at 120 3 weeks ago. I disagreed with this procedure because I thought employees should be notified of this change before a lock could occur. I feel I was punished for giving employees this information so they could put in for their time.
