half day vacations
Just wondering how others handle half day vacations. Our policy states that a half day of vacation will be paid for four hours. In our handbook we consider a half day the period before the lunch break or the period after the lunch break. Quite often we have employees requesting a half day off in the morning, then they come in well before lunch, start working, get paid for four hours plus the time they worked for the day. To me that's taking advantage of the company in order to be paid overtime as we count paid time used when computing overtime for the week. Any comments are apreciated.
