I really don’t understand why you’re throwing a hissy fit. Either move your wedding or quit. Those are your choices. Arguing with the women on this board isn’t going to change them.

You don’t have to like it, or agree with it, but that’s how it is.

jcent:  I don’t know where you are, I’m guessing Canada or Europe based on “labour”, but there is no law in the US regarding vacation usage.  I mean, I wish!!!

aussiemum1248:  Oh bless.  You must not know about the wonderful U. S. of A., where there is no law regarding anyone being entitled to any vacation time.  I’d love to hear the peals of laughter issuing from whatever government office she decided to call with that question.

The use of the word termination is entirely appropriate in discussing, quietly and professinally, the consequences of an unexcused absense.  I am glad things worked out for you, but you come off as entitled.   I agree, you should move on, but I hope not to my office.

cb450k7:  FWIW, good job on getting it cleared up!  I can definitely imagine a supervisor reacting negatively when thinking 2016 vs 2017.  I hope that knowing his was definitely a misunderstanding helps you have a better opinion of them, too, and that you can continue to be successful in your job and enjoy your wedding planning!

I’ve read this thread and really struggle to understand your need to give full days before the wedding to do DIY.

Take this time to find another job. People who treat you like that are shit managers. There were 100 other ways to rebuff your request and they went straight for the jugular. That’s ridiculous and doesn’t sound like a place you’re going to thrive regardless.

If you can prove that it is retaliation, you may be able to take them to court for wrongful termination.

cb450k7:  Agreed. All you were doing was asking action you could take. But some users think you’re being difficult by asking questions on a Q+A forum.

Not going to get into the rest of the issues but HR had absolutely no right to tell you ANYTHING about the other woman.
