In my current job, we are allowed 5 hours per week (paid) for Dr.'s appointments, childrens emergencies, or personal reasons. This doesn't accumulate, so you can't *not* use it, and bam, take a week off. But it's there if we need it, and my particular clinic doesn't take advantage of the time.
We also earn comp. time for working holidays, and one personal and one sick day per month.
I had to take off yesterday to pick dd up from basketball camp, and had put in for it to be unpaid. Payroll called, I had comp time. Did I want to use it?
My original intentions for working holidays are to accumulate the time for emergencies during the school year. So, I chose instead to use a personal day. To me, the comp time is much more valuable than OT. :O) Selfishly also, I don't mind working most Holidays. No one else is, and it's usually, a fluff day. I'd much rather take a day off during the week if needed.
Just as a general idea, how do you utilize your comp time? Yourself? Family emergencies? Sick kids? Vacations? Or, do you take the check at the end of the year?
