My boss stripped me of the remainig vacation days that he previously approved, saying that I hadn't earned them because I wouldn't be working long enough. This is accurate because we have a policy where your total days of the year are based on working most of the year. Yet historically the organization allows you to plan all your vacation well before you actually accrue it and where I messed up, it seems, is being honest enough to admit I am leavig in July. In response to me using sick days, he took away vacation days he previously approved, using an admittedly fair technicality to say I didn't earn them yet and wouldn't be working long enough to earn them.
Wow. He must be fun at parties.
