In our company we have a vacation policy where employees have a set amount of days. We used to keep all vacation in a shared outlook calendar based on honor system, and finally graduated to a system where tracking is much more explicit. We now have 55 employees - the honor system was beginning to break down.
The question is, what happens when an employee uses all their vacation time in a given year? Should managers be allowed to grant additional vacation days if they believe it's justified? This is what we do currently. But seems to open up a can of worms... should negative vacation balance be carried over into future years?
At previous companies, I have see "unpaid vacation" come into play as a solution.
Anybody have any experience with this specific decision - and pros/cons? (Meaning - how to handle when an employee has used up all of their time, and wants to take additional vacation)
