Thank you for the quick response.
What if the employer (CEO) emphasized, more than once, that "everyone gets the exact same vacation and sick days when they start." I questioned her several times because what she was offering seemed so low. Each time, she said, it was the same for every body and "policy was policy."
Sorry for the delay - I looked it up in the manual I was given. This is what it says
"All full time employees are eligible to accrue vacation time. The vacation accrual policy for regular full-time employees is as follows:" It then lists what you receive year 1, years 2 & 3, and so on.
I also found out that the manual is only sent by the CEO (the HR rep never sees it). Thank you for your additional input.
It was the ONLY vacation time stated in the manual (e.g. no other levels or wording indicating any other levels).
Ok. I understand. I was just trying to know where I stood as I plan on confronting the CEO.
Thank you for your time.
God's Blessing for you too.
Dear Shana, Please understand that what the CEO did by my making false statements to you about this issue, is completely unethical, but not illegal in most cases.
I do wish you the best of luck and GOD bless you!
