    I had an emergency dentist appointment today and had two cavaties filled and a root canal done so my mouth is in a lot of pain and I won't be going into work tonight and possibly tomorrow. And I was gonna put in for sick to pad my check.

    My question is can i use as many as I want? Like, if I'm out two days can I use 16 sick hours? I would inagine no. What's the limit if there is one?

    Depends on what your avg shift length is.
    If you're working a solid 40 hr week, you could put down for 8 hrs each day you take off for recovery.
    If less, you will have to consider your weekly hrs/avg like a 30 hr/wk would mean about 6 hrs for each day.

    I think you can only use your sick time for what you were scheduled, NOT to pad hours. Example, if you were scheduled 4 hours one day, and 6 the next day, you'd only be able to use 10 sick time hours.

    I have no clue if this varies by state...or how nice your HR is, but that's all I'm ever able to do.

    If your average hours is only 10 you can't use more sick hours than what you worked plus sick hours.

    That's my understanding, I am going to check with my etl. I know vacation is limited to average hours. I believe sick pay is too but I need to check

    You need to call out, too.

    Every day you work. Just recently listened to a TM rant about being put down as a NCNS because they called in sick the night before their early morning shift. ETL said it was OK, but it got marked as a NCNS anyway. Not the first time this has happened at my store, either.

    When I had to call out, my HR told me I could put up to 12 hours as long as it didn't go over my 40.

    I thought it was really weird but hey my check was hella good.

    How do you get sick hours? I've been Target almost two years and only get vacation.

    It's a state (Cali) or city (Seattle) specific thing. Most of us don't get sick pay.

    I use it to pad hours. I can use up to my average hours whether I call out or not. I have no clue if it's my hr being nice or a variation because of the state I'm in, though.
