Resorts World Contract Summary: 5. Paid Time Off

Management’s current practices regarding paid time off will continue through December 31, 2013. Then, beginning on January 1, 2014, employees will receive vacation, holiday, sick, and personal days in accordance with the IWA, as explained below.

Employees will be entitled to substantial paid time off, with full-time employees receiving 9 holidays; 3 personal days; 8 sick days; and considerable vacation, which is explained in further detail below. Employees who miss work as a result of serving on a jury or due to a death in their immediate family also will receive paid time off.

Tipped employees will be paid twice their regular rate of pay, including night shift differential and part-time premium pay, if any, during paid time off.

Part-time employees will also be entitled to paid benefit days. When a part-time employee’s benefit day pay is pro-rated (as is the case for vacation), they also receive time and a quarter premium pay. Vacation pay, holiday pay, personal day pay, and sick leave pay will all include both part-time premium pay and night shift differential, if applicable.

All full-time non-probationary workers will receive a total of 3 paid personal days with pay: their birthday, their anniversary date of employment, and 1 floating day.

If a non-tipped employee is required to work on any of his/her personal days, s/he shall receive an additional day’s pay while tipped employees will be paid 1 1/2 days’ pay.

 

4. SICK LEAVE (effective 1/1/14)

All employees employed for at least 1 year are entitled to 8 paid sick days each year. Workers may elect to carry over up to 15 paid sick days from one year to the next. Any remaining unused sick days will be paid out on an annual basis not later than the second week of December.

Employees hired after January  1, 2014 who are employed for at least 1 year shall receive 6 sick days after their first year of employment; 7 sick days after their second year of employment; and 8 sick days after their third year of employment.

 

5. PAID BENEFIT DAY RATE FOR TIPPED EMPLOYEES

For paid days off (vacation pay, holiday pay, sick pay, personal day pay, jury duty pay, and bereavement pay), tipped employees will now receive twice their hourly rate, subject to annual increases and including night shift differential and part-time premium pay, if any. This extra pay provision recognizes that gratuities are a large part of a tipped employee’s wage, and ensures that employees don’t make substantially less money when they take a well-earned day off (and miss the opportunity to earn tips).
