Now Jay, just to make it fun, let's take it one step further.

If the alcoholic employee takes those four weeks off to get clean and sober--and is paid during this absence by using his four weeks of accrued vacation time--then he is magically transformed (Godliness aside, I suspect fermion transformation over Higgs boson transformation, primarily because of my preference for — even if it is silly — string theory) into a perfectly attending employee and is eligible for the award. This assumes that eligibility for the perfect attendance award is not destroyed by actually taking paid vacation time during the year.
