    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    We have fiscal years that start on July 1, so usually I'm cashing in on my RJ time right before Independence Day.

    I have one floating holiday that must be used before the end of the calendar year or else it is lost.

    I still have 83 vacation hours, but I can carry over two weeks if I want.

    I will be utilizing some vacation time between Christmas and New Years. Just a few vacation days and I can get almost two whole weeks off.

    I'm sure there are others that do this as well?

    I have 12.5 vacation days, 5 personal days, and 8 comp days. Plus I keep accruing more comp time.

    This year we're allowed to carryover 10 vacation days, but they have to be used by June 30, 2009. I'm carrying over them all .

    I've request the 5 personal days, 4 comp days, and 2 vacation days. A nice long X-mas/New Year's break.

    I'm hoping they let us cash out some of our comp time. Otherwise I may lose some of it.

    One issue I'm having is that by taking this time off I have less time to do all the work that is required. I should be enjoying the time off but instead it is kinda stressing me out!

    I work for myself so I can take as much vacation as I like or think I can afford. Unfortunately, I find it much harder to do that when someone else was telling me how much I could take.

    My wife has to take 2 days on top of what we're taking off for our trip to see her folks for Christmas. We're taking off the 11th and 12th in order to head for the mountains of sitck around town.

    My paid time off rolls over at the end of the year (I do have one of my two floating holidays left that I have to take or lose), but, since I've only been with this firm since late June, I don't have all that much accrued. I generally take off the week between Christmas and New Years, but I'll probably work some half days this time around to save some of my leave. My wife's company is "use it or lose it", so she's taking off a good chunk of December.

    Heading into Christmas i have over a 100 hours of vacation. Our company holidays are Christmas, day after Christmas, and New Years. Due to the the economic climate here in CA we will be shutting down our office for the week between Christmas and New Years. I normally work a day or two between Christmas and New Years and keep my vacation time rolling so that i can have longer vacations in Central America or other places I have been thinking about going. So in actuality i will be taking 4 days off to cover this shut down, but i get 3 weeks paid vacation anyways, so i am in good shape for hopefully a quality vacation next year .

    We can roll 10 days over into the next year. Anything more than that you loose. I have 11 days, so I will be taking an extra day during Christmas time while Mom is on town and carry the other 10 over.

    We cab roll over up to 300 hours aka 37.5 DAYS! I don't have near that much so I'm not worried.

    December Blues

    Woe is me!

    This Bear has just a single vacation day remaining. People that I cover for all have some days left.....Production Control Manager (9 days), 2nd Shift Supervisor (1 day), 1st Shift Supervisor (4 days). December is gonna be one long "blanket" job.

    Woe is me!

    Oh yeah.....I like doing those other things. December is a slower period in my biz, so no biggie. Since I don't drink wine, I thought I would just "whine".

    We do not allow vacation days to carryover. Even though I am one of nine owners, my share is not enough to change the policy. I would prefer that we allow 10 days to be carried into January (and no farther). Oh well.

    When I was in the Marine Corps we could roll over up to 90 days!! at the end of our fiscal year (September 30). There were more that a couple years where I had to take a lot of days off in September or August to avoid losing any days (well, they buy them back from you so they aren't really lost, [I]but[I]...).

    Working in personnel, we would commonly take our vacations and just never process it through the system.

    I've got about 3 weeks I'm carrying over. No problem until I reach 300 hours, which will never happen.

    The local non-profit hospital system is requiring everyone to take 10 days of vacation time before the end of the year. The reason is that accrued vacation shows up on the balance sheet as a liability, and they want their balance sheet to look better for funding in a bad economic climate. It will reduce liabilities by over a million dollars.
