  • changes in vacation policy Maryland

    my company recently updated the employee handbook and changed the vacation policy as follows:

    If you want to use a vacation day the day before or after a holiday (aka thanksgiving, christmas, easter, etc.) than you must use an additional vacation day for the actual holiday. So if i wanted to take off the day after Christmas I would actually have to use a vacation day for Christmas!! Is this legal??

    Yes, assuming you do not work for the government, as private sector employers don't have to offer paid holidays at all. Obviously, this employer has been burned with employees taking "long weekends", wrapping around a holiday, and they have decided to make it less desirable for the employee to do so. Perfectly legal.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
