Silly me, I didnít have it in my contract that if they use their vacation week during a closed paid holiday, that the holiday wouldnít be discounted. So Xmas week where Iím
Closed Monday & Tuesday I have 4 families taking their vacation week... and i have to pay my assistants for the holidays so overall An expensive week for me.

Does anyone have a clause where a discounted vacation week canít be used during a paid holiday? Am I being unfair?

IME, It will be easier to do away with their unpaid/discounted vacation week in the new year. It is one of those "constant drama" policies that continue to be a battle every year.

I get it that it is a lot of missed income at one week, but it equals the same amount of money no matter when they take it.

And this is why it is so hard to defend.

No is so much easier to understand and defend.

I no longer give discounts or free days/weeks etc but when I did I just said

"Vacation or free days may not be used during provider vacation days/weeks or during the final two weeks of care"
