Who draws the short straw when it comes to time off?

You scrimp and save all year for this trip. That’s right, it’s your summer vacation. Whether it’s a “staycation,” a trip to see family back home, or an international luxury cruise adventure, it doesn’t matter. All that matters is that you’re relaxing, not working.

Unless you’re the employer who is left at home, trying to figure out how to make sure all the assignments are covered. So how do you figure out scheduling vacation time off? Does your company require notice? Is it first come, first serve? Have you ever had to say no to someone who wanted time off? If so, how did you deal with it?

You can share your experience with scheduling vacations by posting below! It’s easy to post and the other readers would be grateful if you shared your mighty HR wisdom.

    My reccomendation would be to instill a policy that only a certain percentage (mazimum 50%)of individuals be allowed to take vacation time at the same time.
