Send me your Kronos Pay Codes

Jeff Millard — May 2010

"150% 2/3rds Funeral Leave Pay". As far as I know, this pay code is still in play at a large corporation. It is apparently the intersection of two pay polices. One that says you get 2/3rds of your pay if you need to take leave to attend a funeral and another policy that pays time and a half if you are scheduled to work a schedule not your normal schedule. Yes, even if you were actually on leave. Apparently it was still in use...Why? Because everybody knew that if you had to go to a funeral you changed your schedule with a  buddy and you got your full pay (actually 99.9 % of it) and he or she got time and half. On account of the funeral... Well, I suppose if it was your buddy's funeral and he failed to show up for your scheduled time he would only make 99.9% of his normal pay too. Which isn't half bad when you are 100% dead or not actually working.

The purpose of this blog is to discuss management of these very special groups of learners.

How do you sort your Kronos SOX?

Jeff Millard — May 2010

I have a pair of argyle socks that I've had for a really long time. They are basically black with an electric blue thread as part of the argyle pattern. I bought them as a concession to a somewhat overly corporate-Gordon Gecko-look. (Remember the movie Wall Street...Greed is Good!). The socks just seem to take the edge off the suit. I don't have the suit anymore (or the suspenders) but the socks live on in my sock drawer. Well...one of them does.
