Employment Law/working full time hours with no pto hours


I have been working at this Nursing home almost a year now and I have no pto hours. I asked the woman in payroll about this situation and she stated to me that the administrater said to leave my status as prn when I was hired my application said fulltime. I Work full-time not prn only prn staff does not have pto hours.if I'm working full-time schedule days shouldn't i have pto hours??

PTO is not a requirement by law.  If others working full time have PTO than you should also have PTO hours. This is something you need to take up with the management of your company.

You have the right to call and talk to the Department of Labor about it, and  I don't know your state well but they may or may not help you get the PTO from your company. In our state they do not regulate PTO as it is not required to be given.

I can answer questions about payroll laws and payroll tax laws and Human Resource laws and agencies. I can answer federal payroll and human resource law questions and most states; I do not have a knowledge of the local taxes for cities and counties within the state. If and when I can I will try and send you the website where you can reference the answer and where you can obtain more information as well as a contact number if needed for that particular agency. Some agencies I have worked with are IRS, Department of Labor (federal and state), Revenue Canada (and provincial governments), Inland Revenue, OSHA (0ccupational Safety and Health Administration); Social Security Administration and National Child Support as well as other agencies in Payroll and Human Resources. Some Laws I am particularly familiar with are FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act), ADA (Americans With Disabilities Act), FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) COBRA (Consolidated Omnibus Reconciliation Act ) , QDRO's, QMCSO's, and other support orders and garnishments, USERRA (Uniformed Services Employment and Remployment Rights Act,PPA Act (Pension Protection Act of 2006, As well as most other employment type acts. I am also well versed in the Title V Civil Rights Act and the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act).
