Most employers are pretty good about this, but the odd one will see "business as business" and may expect you to take this time without pay, or not give you the extra time off at all. If it's labor related (you are not well, are going into hospital, having treatments of any sort or a death in the family time-off varies from State-to-State.) The best thing to do is ask your employer straight out and be sure you give the real reason why you need the extra time off. Good luck

You will have to ask your personnel office or your employer. Many places of employment have different rules.

This is exactly my question. I'm asking for time off two months in advance, and my scheduler asked me why. Can an employer deny you time off based on your reason (keeping in mind you aren't getting paid to take the time off). Does anyone know if there's any law or legal information regarding it?

Ask whoever took out the garnishment order for a statement.

If you mean vacation, then what part- or full-time employees get is entirely up to the employer. No law requires paid time off. Vacation, like paid sick leave, is an unregulated gift from the employer.

There is no law that requires an employer to allow you time off to vote.

Yes, if it's on going. In British Columbia, Canada when a person is off work for three days or more an employer can ask for a doctors note. It's best to get a doctors note if possible because the doctor will only tell the employer that you are being treated, but won't tell the employer what you are being treated for (patient/doctor confidentiality.)

Certainly. ALL time off is a unilateral gift from the employer, who controls it as it wishes.

The employer did not give anyone the day off. He went to his employer and asked for a raise.

Be sure to ask your doctor about if it is the right time to take it off, then simply ask for their advice.

Annual leave for employees refers to as paid time off that is granted by your employer to be used at an employee's discretion. Depending on the employer, you may receive X number of days off per year and are granted all those days at one time. You would have to have discretion from your employer on when you can use them.
