Can my employer NOT give me time off?
I have been w/a company for nearly 3 years now and have never taken more than 1 or 2 days off; and that was due to winter. I had planned on going to see my 90 year old grandfather in another state..would probably be the very last time I'd get to see him alive. I did what my supervisor said and wrote down the days I needed off in June...mailed this to her the beginning of April so they could plan a sub for me. I called there the other day and asked if I needed to fill out a special paper to take that time off. She told me that I would have to call EVERY day and tell them I would not be there....Ok, I'd say "I won't be at work today because I'm in Florida??" Is that what they want me to say? I'd be gone for 6 days. I do not qualify for paid vacation...I knew that. She said it was in the policy. Well, it's not in the policy book I have! my book also says that any excused or un-excused time would result in disciplinary actions or termination. What am I supposed to do? I need some time off but I don't want to get fired over it!! I think they are trying to pull something. My husband is going into my office with me and we are going to ask them "where is that at in your policy book because it's not in mine!!!" How can they NOT give me some time off? I could really have some time off when I tell them I QUIT!! That's how mad I am right now!

There is no law that states a company has to allow a person off of work for time requested. The only exception to this rule is if you have a doctor's note stating you are gone because you or your immediate family is ill under the FMLA. Your company is there to provide a service or to make money. You are expected to be there and if you can't provide help for them they can fire you.

Before you go in making yourself look like a fool you may want to reread your handbook because it probably states somewhere in there that it can change at anytime without notice.

I hope you saved a copy of the letter you mailed her. Are you really sure this is the company you want to work for? I know that companies don't HAVE to give us time off but the better the employer the better the employee

Your employer is not legally obligated to give you time off if it is not in a written contract or policy. It does seem that your employer is being a bit hard line about it, but some are. The best move is to go in and tell your supervisor that you need the six days off. If you quit, you will not be able to collect unemployment benefits. Instead of quitting, allow the company to decide if they need to terminate you. Approach the matter in a calm and business like manner, without any argument or stand off. Tell your supervisor simply that you need to have the time off and leave it at that.

First, I would not involve your husband in this matter. It makes you seem weak. Second, read the handbook thoroughly and if it seems like they can fire you at will, then that's what they can do. Just do what you think is right.

ok so you dont have paid vacation or sick time available. that sounds like a bad job to begin with. it sounds like you are doing the right thing by asking well in advance for time away without pay. it has been my experience that if you bring your husband into your office to try to get things settled that 1. you look a little incompetent for not being about to settle this yourself in a reasonable manner and 2. your boss may feel threatened that you had to bring in someone else. either one doesnt help your case. again try to settle this little problem politely and professionally but remember at the end of the day family is most important. maybe in the meantime start looking for another job, and remember that if you quit you most likely wont get unemployment, however if you get fired for not being at work during a "family emergency" then you could very well have a wrongful termination lawsuit available to you.
