    I put in for a personal day for this Friday. It was approved by my supervisor last week and he gave me my piece of paper with his approval on it. Today he tells me that the center will be busier than anticipated and they have to "revisit" my scheduled personal day. How much time do they need to be able to change my personal day?

    Once they approve a day they can't force you to work. They can cry and beg you to work or try to lie to to to get you to work but you don't have to. You could work if you want to but it is your decision.

    The problem here is...and it's always been this way since I've worked here. All personal day requests are done verbally. I've requested days off a month in advance....and gotten verbal approval from my center manager. Then the week of, I remind my sup...and it's oh I don't remember approving that.

    In my center you had to submit a request in writing.

    8 days I believe. I wouldn't talk anymore about it unless he brings it up. I would say oh I won't be here I have an option day.

    In my local, if they approve it and they then ask you to work, you're entitled to time and a half for all day

    Be a lot easier if that was the rule here.

    You asked for the day, he gave it. End of story. If it's that important you won't go in. If you work, then it must not be that important.

    That's why I don't ask for days in advance. I just call an hour before my start time.

    I had a written request and then he gave me a written confirmation that it was approved.

    If they ask you to come in just say that you have made plans because you were granted the day off, and won't change them.

  13. You have "written confirmation that it was approved"? End of story. Enjoy your day off.

    Number one, not your problem! Number two stop feeling guilty! Number three don't cave in! Number four stand your ground! You get where we are going here right?

    Maybe....but I've never seen it done that way on preload here.

    Yeah your preload sups seem to get by without doing lots of procedural things. Like posting start times and such.

    That's just my center. The other centers and primary have always posted them.

    Maybe it's time they graduated to this century, and posted them. Have your BA ask them to do this.
