Hi. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney attorney with extensive labor law experience. I would be happy to provide assistance. Please give me a moment to formulate a response. Also, please keep in mind that our conversation does not include an attorney-client relationship and this is for general information purposes only.

Vacation time is not a legally required benefit, neither by the state and by the federal government. Employers may utilize internal policies to dictate the terms of a vacation policy. There is no legal restrictions on how an employer may set up their policy, except that they must apply policy equally to all employees of the same class (i.e. that it not discriminate).

Therefore, unfortunately, if an employer wishes to have you use vacation time for this circumstance, and they apply it to everyone, they may do so.

I am sorry that I do not have better news for you.
