Last month, we noted that there's a new trend at corporations to offer an unlimited number of vacation days. It saves employers the hassle of tracking vacation time and paying out benefits to employees after they leave. And while such a policy on its surface seems like a boon to workers, critics point out that without vacation days one must use or lose, workers will feel guilty about taking any time off at all.
So this week, we'd like to ask you: Do you use all of your vacation time most years? How much do you have left this year? Or, if you work at a firm that has an "unlimited" vacation policy, let us know what you think of it.
