I think this argument trumps all others.Originally posted by: Special K
Technically if you are salaried, then you are paid to do a job, regardless of the time involved.
So if you can do your job for the week in 2 days, you can just not come in the other 3 days?Originally posted by: shocksyde

I guess in that case they would be paying you to sit around and play solitare or nef on AT. It's obviously not the same as being on vacation, but you aren't being paid to do any actual work in that case.Originally posted by: senseamp

Personally, I just take solace in all the times I've been able to duck out at 4:00 or take a 90 minute lunch without it affecting my paycheck and in realising that I still come out ahead.Originally posted by: NuclearNed
Most salaried workers are payed on a yearly basis (i.e. $100k per year). $100k is constant no matter how many days there are in the year. On leap years there is an extra day for which you don't get paid.Originally posted by: lokiju

Why would I not get paid?
That too. Where I work the salary is converted to a bi-weekly amount and we get paid that fixed amount every two weeks. That means that leap year doesn't affect me either.Originally posted by: puffff
2 out of 3 places i've worked at, my annual pay is converted to an hourly rate based on 52 weeks a year, 5 days a week, 8 hours a day. i then get paid every week or every two weeks based on a 40 hour week. so an extra leap year day doesnt affect me.Originally posted by: NuclearNed

We do something like that already. Leap years do not occur when the year is divisible by 100 but not divisible by 400. (E.g. 2000 was a leap year but 1900 was not.)Originally posted by: shocksyde
So should we skip every 100th leap year? Does this mean I get paid for an extra .04 days every 4 years? My head asplode.
I thought there actually was some complicated rule like this.Originally posted by: shocksyde

Actually, that's not true.
You get paid $X per year. A year is defined as 365.25 days.
It's actually 365.24 days/year.
So should we skip every 100th leap year? Does this mean I get paid for an extra .04 days every 4 years? My head asplode.
However, some exceptions to this rule are required since the duration of a solar year is slightly less than 365.25 days. Years which are evenly divisible by 100 are not leap years, unless they are also evenly divisible by 400, in which case they are leap years.[1][2] For example, 1600 and 2000 were leap years, but 1700, 1800 and 1900 were not. Going forward, 2100, 2200, 2300, 2500, 2600, 2700, 2900, and 3000 will not be leap years, but 2400 and 2800 will be. By this rule, the average number of days per year will be 365 + 1/4 - 1/100 + 1/400 = 365.2425, which is 365 days, 5 hours, 49 minutes, and 12 seconds.
Roughly 2-3 days out of 10, though I'm sure if you actually figured it out it would depend greatly on the particular 40 year span. So after 40 years you have worked an extra week in some circumstances.Originally posted by: DrPizza
But, over the course of 40 working years, quite a few of those February 29'ths are going to fall on Saturdays and Sundays.
</knows that quite a few people are going to hurt themselves thinking about that.>
What is this bi-weekly crap? There's a word for that period of time, 'fortnight' and 'fortnightly'.Originally posted by: Tweak155
This only holds true if you get paid by the month on a certain day each month (i.e the 1st and the 15th or just the 1st, etc).
If you get paid weekly, bi-weekly, every 4 weeks, etc...its just a continuous cycle of weeks regardless of what the date is.
I'm bi-weekly so it doesn't matter. But I do know someone getting hit by this ahahahaha.
Exactly. Even without crunching any numbers I know I'm still ahead by a long shot. The amount of down time I've taken at the expense of the company is absolutely stunning. At one time I was a salaried employee and over the course of that one year, 3 months of away down time was paid out 100% as if I was on the job and performing.Originally posted by: Zenmervolt
