Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
There would be no requirement that the employer offer more time off work, and there would be nothing illegal or improper about requiring the use of PTO.
I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.
As noted, it is not illegal or improper to require the use of PTO. This is because employers are not legally required to offer any PTO at all. Since they are not required to offer PTO, they can compel its usage under any circumstances they determine to be appropriate. An employee does not have a right to use their PTO at times of their choosing.
I hope this clarifies things. Again, please feel free to let me know if you have any further concerns. If I have answered your question, I would be very grateful for a positive rating of my service so that I may receive credit for assisting you.
Very best wishes.
