Some firms have a policy that if you work at least ½ day you can charge the remainder to admin or clerical and not reduce ur PTO time. I normally only charge full days for PTO. If I need a partial day, I make up the time other days of the week

No restriction on hour increments for vacation or personal days. ADO must be in full day increments

Yes. I do that all the time.

Can personal days also be used in increments then?

Yep

Yes. I do it all the time.

You can leave early and take an hour or so too.

My manager doesn’t seem to have any boundaries - always saying yes to additional unnecessary work from the client and always working through weekends/nights/PTO/holidays.
