What is the name of your state? California
My company gives us our vacation time up front. From the day you begin working, you have 10 vacation days to use. However, they insist you use them all up by the end of the year. If you have any left over, they do not roll over. If your boss or anyone in HR recalls you having a day you did not use after the year has ended, they force you to use it in January, by the end of their fiscal year. My question is this: It has been brought to attention that I have one unused vacation day. My dept. is not allowed to take days off during a week with a holiday in it, so I cannot take my day off next week (Christmas) or the week after (New Year's). My boss told me today, Monday, that I HAVE to take my vacation day this week and that I have no other option; I am to tell her by the end of the day which day this week I want to take off. Is this legal? Can they FORCE me to take my day off this week even if I don't want to? Please advise asap! Thanks!!
