The New Normal. Aetna Reduces Vacation Time For Longtime Employees.

Longtime employees at Aetna are losing five days of their vacation time from 33 to 28 days.  The move is designed to cut expenses, according to a report in the Hartford Courant.

Starting Jan. 1, an Aetna worker who has 25 years or more with the company will essentially lose a week of paid time off. Currently, about 2,500 workers companywide, roughly 1,125 of them in Connecticut, are eligible for the 33 days.
