Vacation Accrual for Part-Time to Full-Time

If an employee is hired as full-time effective 04.15.13 then changed to part-time effective 03.10.15, causing them to miss the vacation accrual on their 2015 anniversary date, then returned to full-time 05.01.15, and if we have a policy in place that allows employees do NOT have to satisfy a waiting period if they return to full-time within 90 days of becoming part-time, should this employee receive the vacation accrual she would have received on 04.15.15 if she would have been full-time on that date?

A waiting period is the time period an employee must complete before being able to accrue vacation time. So, in this case, since the employee returned to full time within 90 days, he doesn’t have to wait to start accruing vacation time. He should start accruing his full time vacation entitlements as of May 1st.

The policy doesn’t necessarily mean that the employee should be treated as if his status never changed and his accrual entitlements be backdated. However, since vacation policies are at the discretion of the employer, how you choose to interpret your policy is up to you. Just keep in mind the precedent that you will be setting with your decision.
