  • vacation/sick time pay

    The facility I work at has changed policies related to sick pay or EIB. For example, I work three 12 hour shifts a week. If I am sick and have to call in, then I have to take 2 days of vacation pay before I can take an EIB day, unless of course I was hospitalized on the first day. My question is this, I am required to work 12 hour shifts, where other people in the same facility only work 8 hour shifts. Therefore, they can begin taking EIB after 16 hours of vacation pay where I have to take 24 hours of vacation pay before my EIB can begin. Is this fair and legal?

    It may or may not be fair, but it is legal.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
