So at the beginning of January I asked my sup for time off in March. He said I could take the time and was free to go. So I went and bought my airline tickets to visit my family. Last week they pulled me aside and told me it wasn't going to work and that if I didn't show up to work I would probably lose my job. I talked to my Supervisors boss and he basically told me I'm SOL. I genuinely enjoy my job, and would like to keep it. Is there anything I can do besides eating a pricey airline ticket in order to keep my job? TL;DR Asked for time off, got it. Supervisor tells me a month later I can't take it.
