I work for a federal training facility contractor and we had completed a large project and were going on an incentive trip to an amusement park. I was told at 435pm the day before that I would not be allowed to go on trip with the school because I live with another contractor, which they have known about for 2 years. I requested PTO at that time for the next day. PTO time can be used for any personal time off needed. I took my family to the same park. I was then written up and suspended for one day for insubordination
I am unclear what is has to do with it as well that was just reason I was given as to why I would not be allowed to attend, because we were both going it would look like favoritism, but did not look that way when we were all working on the project. I only took PTO because I was told I could not go on the trip, everyone else was a normal working day
No problem I have days like that too
