Some of the items on your pay stub:

Use Sick Bal and Use Per Lv Bal: 7.5/302.4 The first number is how many days you used up during the 2 week period ending on the Period End date. The second number is your remaining balance as of the period date. Remember to divide by 7.5 hours to convert into days.
