Employment Lawyer: Patrick, Esq., Lawyer replied 1 year ago

I assume you are asking whether this is a legal practice. Unfortunately, I must tell you that it is. In general, the law does not require employers to offer vacation at all. So, the law permits employers to create their own rules with regard to how and when they will administer a benefit they are not legally required to give. The employer's policy does not need to be fair, provided it is not administered in a way that discriminates on the basis of a legally protected trait such as race or religion. You can attempt to reason with your employer that this policy is unfair, but regrettably you would not have any legal options under the circumstances you describe, typically speaking. I am very sorry.

If I can clarify anything at all for you, please do not hesitate to ask. It is my pleasure to assist you further if necessary....
