Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Thank you for the information and your question. Although I can certainly understand your frustration with what you fiance's boss has decided, there is nothing unlawful in what the employer has done. An employer always has the right to cancel permission for vacation unless there is a bargaining agreement or other contract that states otherwise. That is because there is no law that requires an employer to offer leave to their employees. So, if the employer does offer leave, they get to set the rules. That, in turn, means that the employer can cancel leave either because of an employee not having enough hours or even just because they arbitrarily decide to.
Please feel free to ask for clarification if needed. If none is needed, then if you could take a moment to leave a positive rating in the box above, I will receive credit for assisting you today. Thank you
Yes, unfortunately, that is the case. It doesn't make it right from a moral perspective, but it is legal.
I wanted to touch base with you and make sure that you did not have any further follow up questions for me from the answers I provided to you on the 4th. For some reason, the Experts are not always getting replies or ratings (at the top of the question/answer page you are viewing or in the pop up box for this question), which is how we get credit (paid by the Site) for our work, that the customer thinks have gone through. In your case I did not receive a rating. If you are having technical difficulties with reading, replying or rating, please let me know so that I can inform the Site administrator.
