They’re all non-exempt, so a few hours off really does mean getting paid to do nothing.
All of these options felt wrong, but I ended up giving no one time off. Or should perks like a few freebie hours be distributed regardless of performance?
To do this, our bosses have split us up into teams and are giving us tokens to redeem for work perks.
These perks are normally denied to us advisors, but are university approved for everyone to use like teleworking and alternative working schedules.
Our Word of the Year choice serves as a symbol of each year’s most meaningful events and lookup trends.

Insane Chevy 350 Small Block in Murray Riding Lawn Mower! We have parts for ALL BRANDS of power equipment including Craftsman, John Deere, Cub Cadet, Honda, Troy Bilt, Murray, Snapper plus commercial brands like Scag and Exmark.The idea of a competition to earn perks is legal in and of itself, even if it’s designed to get you to work extra shifts.If you were non-exempt, some of what they’re asking you to do to compete would be illegal: Regardless of any perks that you might receive, your employer is required by law to pay non-exempt employees for all the time they’ve worked, including overtime.” (Ideally your boss will just say that she hopes everything is okay and won’t pry, but if she does ask what’s going on, it’s fine to say something vague like, “Just a difficult personal situation, but I’m trying to work it out.”) If you can’t imagine saying that to your boss, I tend to think that the phrase “under the weather” covers situations like this one (you’re emotionally under the weather, after all). My office is having us compete for “perks” by working extra time I work for an online state university that acts more like a private for-profit university in terms of “selling” registration.For instance, it would be reasonable to say something like, “I’m under the weather but want to keep being productive — would it be okay for me to work from home today and tomorrow? We have our busiest registration period coming up and as advisors/call center reps, our bosses want us to get hyped to work the busy, stressful month.
