  • Forced to use PTO when none was available Colorado

    I have just recently been told that I must go further into the hole with my PTO hours. I currently have no earned PTO and needed to take one day off due to illness. Can my employer force me to take PTO when I have none to take? This didn't seem to be the correct procedure to me, shouldn't I just be docked a days pay from my salary?

    Regards,

    While it certainly isn't the way I'd handle it, there is no law prohibiting this practice; therefore, yes, your employer may require this.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
