I had a Jr Copywriter lie to my face and say she needed to use 5 sick days at the end of her 2 week vacation to visit her dying grandmother. Dying grandmother apparently live in 3 different countries. And then she had the balls to take another vacation because she had negotiated another week of vacation when she was hired (I had no idea), all of this during a huge launch. Fucking hated her. Still do.

Guys, this varies by company. Don't confuse paid time off / PTO with vacation, which is part of PTO.

^ incorrect my friend

they pay out unused PTO when you leave, but not sick days. Also, you can't carry over sick days.

Anyone else feel like being “encouraged” to take time off when things are slow is a bit disingenuous from leaderships. When I really need time off is when I am working 60 hour weeks back to back for 3 months Karen, not now during a week I’m unassigned.

Spinoff question... I know FMLA technically only covers you if you've worked for 12 months at your employer but has anyone actually had their employer say "sorry you we only here for 10 months so you can take your two weeks of accrued vacation, after that we'll expect you back." ? Since FMLA is unpaid anyway, I would imagine most employers would at least let you have unpaid time off.
