Where's my vacation?
Q. I'm an associate who's paid on production only. Does this system discourage me from taking unpaid vacation days? Do I really even have any vacation time?
"If you're paid solely on production, you're not directly receiving paid vacation time," says Veterinary Economics Hospital Management Editor Mark Opperman, CVPM, owner of VMC Inc. in Evergreen, Colo. "You're paid more at other times of the year and, of course, less when you're on vacation."
