    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    With management pre-approval, employees may take personnel leave that they have not yet accrued.

    • A.

      True--they may take up to -40 hours.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True--they may take up to -40 hours.
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that employees can take personnel leave even if they haven't accrued it yet, as long as they have management pre-approval. The answer "True--they may take up to -40 hours" indicates that employees can take a maximum of 40 hours of leave that they haven't accrued. This implies that the organization allows a certain level of flexibility for employees to take leave in advance, with the understanding that they will accrue the necessary hours over time.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which of the following is NOT necessary when you telecommute or work from home?

    • A.

      An appropriate business reason

    • B.

      Pre-approval from your manager

    • C.

      A doctor's excuse

    Correct Answer
    C. A doctor's excuse
    Explanation
    When telecommuting or working from home, a doctor's excuse is not necessary. This is because telecommuting allows employees to work from the comfort of their own homes, eliminating the need for a doctor's excuse. An appropriate business reason and pre-approval from a manager are important factors to consider when telecommuting, as they ensure that the employee's work is aligned with company goals and expectations. However, a doctor's excuse is not relevant in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    When employees have a doctor's appointment for part of the business day, how many hours must they charge to personnel leave?

    • A.

      At least half a day, or four hours

    • B.

      As many hours as the appointment takes

    • C.

      Zero hours, as long as they are able to make up the missed hours during the rest of the pay period

    • D.

      Eight hours

    • E.

      They must take one day of sick leave

    Correct Answer
    C. Zero hours, as long as they are able to make up the missed hours during the rest of the pay period
    Explanation
    Employees are not required to charge any hours to personnel leave if they have a doctor's appointment for part of the business day, as long as they are able to make up the missed hours during the rest of the pay period. This means that they can adjust their schedule and work extra hours on other days to make up for the time they missed. Therefore, zero hours need to be charged to personnel leave in this situation.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of the following is NOT necessary to expense a business meal?

    • A.

      Correct charge code

    • B.

      Menu from the restaurant

    • C.

      Business purpose of the meal

    • D.

      List of attendees

    Correct Answer
    B. Menu from the restaurant
    Explanation
    The menu from the restaurant is not necessary to expense a business meal. The correct charge code is needed to allocate the expense correctly. The business purpose of the meal is important to justify the expense as a legitimate business expense. A list of attendees is necessary to document who was present at the meal. However, the menu from the restaurant is not required for expense purposes as it does not affect the validity or justification of the expense.

  • 7. 

    What hours should you record on your timesheet at the end of every business day?

    • A.

      Eight hours

    • B.

      All hours that you worked

    • C.

      All hours that you worked, up to eight hours

    • D.

      At least six hours

    Correct Answer
    B. All hours that you worked
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to record all hours that you worked on your timesheet at the end of every business day. This means that you should accurately document the total number of hours you have worked, regardless of whether it is less than eight hours or more than eight hours. It is important to provide an accurate record of your working hours for payroll and tracking purposes.

    If HPTi prepares a Statement of Work for a client's Request for Proposal, and then bids on that RFP, the potential for _______ exists?

    • A.

      A good business opportunity

    • B.

      A sole source opportunity

    • C.

      A conflict of interest

    • D.

      A competitive bid

    Correct Answer
    C. A conflict of interest
    Explanation
    If HPTi prepares a Statement of Work for a client's Request for Proposal and then bids on that RFP, the potential for a conflict of interest exists. This is because HPTi, as the preparer of the Statement of Work, may have inside knowledge or bias that could give them an unfair advantage in the bidding process. This situation raises ethical concerns and could undermine fair competition among other bidders. It is important to ensure transparency and avoid conflicts of interest in order to maintain the integrity of the bidding process.

      Eight hours

      Zero hours, as long as he makes up the hours during the rest of the pay period

    Correct Answer
    A. Eight hours
    Explanation
    When an employee takes a full day off, they are required to record eight hours of personal leave. This means that the employee must deduct eight hours from their total leave balance for that day. This is the standard practice for recording personal leave when an employee takes a full day off.

    • C.

      If employees wish to order laptops that cost more than $3000, they are responsible for any amount over $3000.

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above

The remaining half of the loan is deducted from the employee's paycheck in increments of $25 until it is fully paid off. Employees are only allowed to have one outstanding laptop loan at a time. If employees choose to order laptops that exceed $3000, they are responsible for paying the amount that exceeds the limit.

Therefore, all of the statements mentioned above are true.
