  • Day Off Denial In Massachusetts

    My company only allows only 1 person off Mondays and fridays and 2 people off Tuesdays thru Thursdays. If we need a day off and there is already those people off we are required to find coverage for ourselves. My question is can a company deny you a day off even if you have the vacation time saved? Thanks.

    Yes they can, and it's good business practice to do so; the business unit in which you work has to have the proper coverage. Vacation benefits are not required to be provided by law, so the employer has the right to control when you take it. Obviously, then, the best idea is to put in your vacation day(s) as early as possible, since it sounds like the policy is "first come, first served".
