I realize there is no law that companies have to provide sick or vacation time in NC. My company does provide both sick and vacation time. Can I be penalized for taking a sick day after a scheduled vacation day, or should I just be referring to a company handbook?
Also can I be told that I can't call out sick? I've heard a couple different answers on this one. So I'm looking for any regulations that need to be adhered to when it comes to NC labor laws. So can I call out sick, with a company mandated 4 hours before a shift, and still be told that I can not call out sick? Can I be penalized for taking a sick day after being told that I could not?
Thanks for the help!
