I was hired March 3rd, 2011. Before being hired, in an interview, I was told (and the policy manual states) that I would have life insurance starting day 1 and health insurance on the first month following hire date. I would also get one week of vacation one year after hire date.
After being hired I was told that my life and health insurance would start after the 6 month probationary period was over. I didn't know I had a 6 month probation until my start day, March 3rd. My six months was up on Sept. 3rd 2011. After several other policies seemed to change overnight without revisions to the policy manual I talked with my boss. He then proceeds to tell me that my hire date was September 3rd and the 6 month probation doesn't count towards my time worked. Therefore, I would get vacation 18 months after I started.
I am just curious if anyone knows if KY has any laws on hire dates or probation periods? This is really aggravating especially since I have lost $1200 for being on my wife's insurance for the past 6 months. If this is the case should I put March 3, 2011 or September 3, 2011 as my hire date on my resume? Thanks in Advance!
