Address the following in an essay format which includes an introduction and conclusion (not a Q & A format):
- Companies often have several policies on time away from work. What are some examples of time away from work policies found in private-sector organizations today? Provide employer names from your research.
- Click on the video below to learn about “unlimited vacation” jobs where employees could go to work whenever they feel like it.
(CBS This Morning, 2015)
- As you see in the video above, some employers have an “unlimited” vacation policy. Others have an “Employee Time-Off Policy” that allows employees a set number of paid days off regardless of the reason (instead of individual absenteeism, sick days, vacation, short-term leave, long-term leave, FMLA, and other policies). Would it be better for the King Company to have an Employee Time-Off Policy, something similar to the unlimited vacation policy discussed in the video above, or something else? Why? Support your response with research.
Utilize information from at least two Trident Online Library sources to help strengthen and validate your discussion.
Paper length: 3-4 pages (not counting the cover and reference pages).
Provide private-sector employer examples of HRM programs, systems, processes, and/or procedures as you address the assignment requirements. Provide names of the employers. Use different employer examples in this course than what have been used previously in your other papers and courses.
Bring in related court case decisions to help augment your discussion, if applicable.
Make reasonable, cost-effective assumptions in your paper. It is not an option, however, for you to hire additional help (temporary or otherwise). State your assumptions in the beginning of your discussion.
