Yes, but you have to pay for any additional charges while you are there. Do check first though there may be special requirements for the training

My husband starts training next week at a location about 5 hours from where we live, so he will be staying in a motel. He will be there 4 days. I am thinking about going with him. 1st, will he be compensated for the motel? 2nd, are spouses allowed to stay with them at a motel? Thanks ^ ^

Seperation /rehire question!
I was hired as a PSE (Clerk) 75 days ago. Just completed Window Training and was in process of making PTF right at my 90 days.
Just today received a Notice of Seperation: Termination (Non-career) as of immediately. Turns out, IG had an outstanding warrent come up on the bi-weekly NCIC background checks.
Warrent is incorrect, and getting removed asap but legal takes time.
Since I was in probation, I have no access to union rep, grievance, or appeal.
When I get this dropped, will I be immediately eligible for rehire?
Please help. I love the USPS! Wanted to make it my career!

/m1759 Probably. Unless you burned a bridge so badly that your file indicates "do not rehire" (not very common, partially for legal CYA concerns) you will be eligible for rehire, yes.

I assume you were an RCA? If rehired as an RCA, a non-career position, you would indeed be starting over.

After which day do you lose annual leave over 440 hours? Is it January 20, 2017?

Lite- First thing I would look at is to see if the leave you took qualifies under FMLA. If it does then she definitely cannot refuse to pay you the sick leave or for the holiday. I would immediately file a grievance and look at FMLA.

Can a manager refuse to pay me for being sick? I have sick leave and annual leave that I have never used. I got really sick last week and had to take off. When I returned to work I brought documentation and she says she will not pay me for it nor the new year holiday pay. Can she do this? And why would she it's not like it's coming from her sick time.

/m1747 delegates from lower cost of living areas dominate the union conventions they believe if the higher cost of living areas are at the lowest living wage that can be squeezed then they will get more money than if everybody was squeezed to the lowest living wage possible even with the federal locality adjustments

If you have to deviate on a route due to construction -- Do you get paid for that mileage?

You do not earn leave while out for an on the job injury as you are placed in an LWOP status while out.
