Personnel Technician - Quiz

Another test? ! Yes, this is the second test I am requesting you complete. Please note, this is by no means a test of your worthiness to work in HR (but, if you fail, you don't get to enjoy Chili Verde next time we get it). .

    Correct Answer
    B. Date of hire, FTE, and title
    Explanation
    The accruals for leave such as eco, floating holiday, and education leave for new hires are affected by the factors of date of hire, FTE (full-time equivalent), and title. These factors determine the amount of leave that new hires are eligible to accrue. The date of hire determines when the accruals begin, while FTE and title may affect the rate at which the accruals accumulate. The answer states that these factors are the ones that affect leave accruals, implying that other factors such as the leave progression date or the date the employee signed their offer letter do not have an impact on the accruals.

    Explanation
    Employees' eligibility for a vacation buy back is determined by several factors. These include the bargaining unit to which they belong, the amount of vacation, annual, and professional leave they have used in the previous year, and the length of their employment with the County. The bargaining unit is likely relevant as it may have specific agreements or rules regarding vacation buy back. The amount of leave used in the previous year is important to ensure that employees have actually taken their allotted time off before considering a buy back. Finally, the length of employment with the County may be a factor to determine if an employee has earned the right to a vacation buy back.
