Not gonna hold my breath .... UPDATE IN RED

Posted by   + Show Post

Not sure if you remember, but I had put in for Paid Time Off with my former company when I went to California this past summer to be at Johnny's college graduation.  When I went from full time to part time (October 2011) I had at least 40 hours of PTO left to use - but my request was denied by the owner who told me when I went part-time I forfeited any remaining unused PTO.

 I got an email from the bookkeeper yesterday:

"Hey Ronna, I show you still have 56 hours PTO, so what *** wants to do is pay you for it in 3 increments on your paychecks at 19hrs and the 3 would be 18 hrs. She is no longer carrying over  PTO.  Thanks and have a great day. If you have any questions, please let me know."

LOL.  too funny.  56 hours?   My calculations showed me at 40 hours WHICH WAS DENIED.  

I'm gonna keep quiet about this (and not hold my breath) but just wait and see what happens on my paychecks. 

So today is payday - I was expecting take-home pay of around $75.   My bank received a deposit of nearly $250.  Hipp Hipp Hurrah!  Merry Christmas to me!  Two more paydays left in the year.  Now I wonder - can they make me pay it back?

Yeah I do remember and I remember we all thought your boss was scamming you. I'm going to keep all my fingers and toes crossed that you get that money that you were denied, just in time for chistmas

Yes, it will be quite nice to get my PTO, especially for the holidays!  I just think it's funny that their bookkeeping system is so bad. 

Johnny just booked his flight home for Christmas - now that he's working, he doesn't get 3 weeks off for the winter break like he did while in college!  He will arrive in KC Saturday evening (Dec 22) and leaves KC Wednesday afternoon (Dec 26).  And ugh.  Not knowing earlier when he could come, he had to wait to book this flight - to the tune of $600!  That's just about what this PTO will pay me before taxes ... lol.

Glad that you got the first installment.  I'm guessing you will get to keep it and hoping you will.

Isn't it fun when the corporate left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing...especially when it manifests itself in the bank! Happy, Happy!

Yay for you...I hope they keep coming!

 Since it was direct deposited into your account, if they try to reverse the transaction, your bank will have to contact you for approval to do it!!!  Just say no!!!!!!

Merry Christmas to you!!!
