Scenario: Doctor has one assistant. The assistant wants a week vacation. Can manager deny vacation because there is noone else to work with doctor and say that vacation is allowed only when said doctor is also out? This has been going on 3 years now, Wondering if vacation will ever be allowed when employee wants.
Hi there - My department does not follow the vacation request guidelines for afscme employees. It has in the past negatively affected me and I am curious to find out if these guidelines in the contract are optional. If not, is there a way to see that my department starts following them? Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
I have requested 8/12/16(off) thorugh 9/12 (returning). I was denied the final 2 days and my manager sighted AFSCME contract provision that stipulates a mx of 4 weeks request. I work 10 hour shifts and with a Holiday (labor day) that gives me 160 hours off. Which = 4 work weeks of 40 hours. Is my interpretation correct or is my managers? thank you
I submitted a question earlier today and got an email telling me to check here for a response....I cannot find the response to my question please help
Our new supervisor has recently told us that we are unable to ask for vacation to be approved unless a regularly worked shift is included in this time off. That means if we need to make sure that we have a weekend off and not be on call for traveling in the future, we cannot ask for that off unless the Friday or Monday before are included in this. Is this accurate? I cannot find where his point is stated in the contract.
Could an employee/department force management into a consensus-based vacation requesting/granting process? Currently, the vacation policy isn't applied fairly throughout the department.
During the inclement weather our clinic was closed. Can i take without pay or am i required to use vacation time? And does my manager have to right to constantly use my vacation time to supplement missed time ( 1-2 minutes)without my permission?
I put in a request 7/10/12 for vacation from 1/25/13 - 2/15/13 but have not heard anything and would like it approved, especially since I've paid for the trip. What are the rules re vacation requests. Thanks
Do i need to tell my supervisor what i' doing if i need time off for personal issues with me or my family? even if they ask me directly what i need my time off for?
If you are out sick, and do not have the sick time to cover all the hours, can you use vacation time to make up the difference?
Some of my coworkers and I were unclear about what the new contract says about vacations. If an employee has vacation and comp hours accrued is he/she able to take it all at once or is it still at the employers discretion and can be denied? Is there a limit to how long of a vacation time one can take at one time?
If an employee puts in a vacation request for the same time as an employee that has more seniority in the first round and they get denied, due to only allowing one person off at a time does this still count as one of their 4 requests
If I request a holiday off does that count as a vacation request or is that a separate request.
I asked to use "vac" to transport my brother home from the hospital after a heart attack. The time off was granted, but changed to "sic" by the Adm. Coordinator. Is that allowed????
I was called on Sunday 12/14/08 and told the office would not open due to the weather and not to come in, and now they are asking me to use my vacation time. I know if they send you home because of bad weather they will pay for the full day, but what about when the managers call and close the clinic, should they pay yesterday 12/15/08 also?
I'm just verifying the method used to calculate the amount of time off requested on the upcoming vacation schedule.
