No. Its 'break' time. I assume you are working more than 1 to 2 hours above the 8 hrs in a day anyways right?

No

Lol big fat no there, buddy. You've probably done your 45 hours before you even enter the doc's office, so keep that in mind 😏

Hell no. If anything, I would charge sick time before charging PTO.

Really all of you who responded no? Disappointed. There's a reason why PTO is tracked in hours and not days (at least at Big4). Always book time to appropriate codes. Ready for the flak I will get. Still, do the right thing.

PTO and sick time are for full days only. Ghost or admin time

Nope

no

@K1- I don’t charge PTO for only working 8 hours instead of 12 for leaving early now and then, or having to duck out a few hours in the middle of the day for a personal thing, sorry

Yes, do the right thing. Charge PTO for all time not spent actively working, included but not limited to all bathroom, smoke, personal call, chit-chat, off-hours sleep, and meal breaks. #ReallyDude

Notice etiquete question. If you give your 2 weeks’ notice on a Monday, is your last day a Monday (2 weeks later) or can it be the previous Friday? Does your answer change depending on the time (morning/ afternoon) notice is given? If I don’t want to potentially burn any bridges, should I just have my notice period end on a Monday and just take that day out of my scheduled vacation before starting my next job? First time giving notice - would be interested in hearing what others have done.
