    Especially in high turnover, low paying jobs. Another benefit that has disappeared for many: Extended Illness Time (EIT). It builds up every paycheck, at a much lower rate. Can be used if you have taken 3 PTO days in succession. Usually needs a doc note, may need ok to RTW as well.

    I distinctly remember a new supervisor ending my first annual review with "And you are Never sick!"  Which was true. I never used  EIT until my GP's LPN was just SURE (on a phone call) I had a viral sinus infection and insisted I do sinus washes. ED diagnoses 2 days later were hilar lobe pneumonia, bilateral otitis media with ruptured eardrums. I was out 5 weeks. Fortunately I had enough combined PTO and EIT to cover the base hours. No OT or night shift rates...
