  • Michigan - Vacation Laws

    I have a friend who is a manager of a local fast food chain. His management told him he has to take his vacation in a week's lump. He can't take them in 2 or 3 day increments. He checked his employee handbook and there is no mention of this. Are their any laws in Michigan that protect him from such ridiculous demands or is he pretty much out of luck on this?

    Vacation is a benefit and not required by law. The employer has the final say in when and if it can be taken, unless there is some type of contract in place that states otherwise.

    Handbooks are not law. They are a general guideline for empoyees and employers and can be changed at the discretion of the employer at any time as long as they are not motiviated by illegal discrimination.

      If others in that company in simular positions are able to do this but he can not and he's not on any form of performance plan, would any form of discrimination be taking place? Does he have any options besides finding a new job?
