So I just got into work this morning, to find out that our Customer has yet to pay for our next installment on our contract. What does this mean? This means that I learn a new term... - Forced PTO. This is where there is no money to pay you for the rest of the "Term" until the money hits, and since it's illegal to charge against money that isn't there, then you are "Suggested" to take PTO. For those of you that are unclear, PTO is Paid Time Off. It's basically paid leave, and you only get so much per year. This is basically your vacation time. But if you want to get paid, you need to take it, otherwise you're just not going to get paid. I'm sure there's many different variations of what happens when this type of thing happens, but now I'm wondering if I need to start looking for another job. Lovely Process of being a contractor. At least when I was in the Army I knew I was still getting a paycheck.
