We are a WA state LLC-P with less than 30 employees.I have an employee who claimed to have 'worked' on vacation. He is a salaried
, full-time, exempt employee. He recorded the time in our time keeping system. No one approved the time sheet (we don't have a policy to approve, we just collect data for analysis). And, he is known to inflate his hours.Now he wants to have vacation compensation for hours he claimed to have worked. I disagree because he is super manipulative and I want to say no. What is the best approach?Here is my proposed reply …
We do not have a policy of working on vacation. It’s no longer vacation then. I do not ask or instruct you to work on vacation. See the email below … it *encourages* you to *NOT* work. But I extended a one-time courtesy because you asked for it. You then proceeded to work a large number of hours to offset most of the time you took off. Convenient!I did not authorize work on future vacations. Also, I have no control over your hours and how you use/record them. Your track record indicates excessive hours spent on work items that should be done quicker.Also, there are many other personal days you haven’t reported. E.g. when you were dealing with your eye issues recently or other times you attended to Beth, I do not recall. Have you been as precise keeping a track of that?Another issue, we agreed you would come into office twice a week. You haven’t followed through on that consistently. Am I to assume the weeks you didn’t come in, were days off?DylanHis earlier response:
The time off for Beth I believe you are speaking about was 2/8/2016-2/11/2016 (row 6 below) which I did not formally ask for as time off. *Note* I did record the time off in HarvestApp during those days.
I’ve consolidated all the vacation that I’ve taken, along with the hours worked while on vacation (as instructed in your email of 3/31/2015 below) and netted out the vacation time.
Here is a summary of my calculations:
Rather than being 80 hours behind, by my calculation, using your rules, I am 22.17 hours ahead currently. But Cecily please share your data if you have different data points.
