    I started out that way, yet after years of being bought and sold and abused my loyalties lie solely with myself. My dedication to the Brand is only for the benefit of my crew and co-workers and their outlook is much the same. We strive to make each other's jobs as least difficult as possible. I never want to burn a bridge, but my main reason to not Ghost or drag up is I don't ever want to leave my crew in a bind.

    This exactly.

    Edit: correction

    Ever wonder why so many companies are moving to "unlimited vacation" policies?

    Sort of. State employment law plays a big part in this. Sick/Vacation/PTO can be a benefit provided in addition to compensation or as tangible comp. CA requires it to be treated as earned comp, but not every state does.

    In most states, accrued sick/vacation/PTO is left up the express contract with the employee. Absent that, written company policy is the precedent, and if neither exists, then any implied contracts, and finally previous company practices are looked at if EEOC or DOL is involved in a dispute.

    If it’s sued for in local court, all bets ride on state law.

    I worked 10+ years for a national commercial developer. Ventured out on my own and for the balance of my professional life over 60% of my gross income came from contracts with that previous employer. Counting my blessings, that was my first professional employment after graduation and could not have been more perfect!!
