We recently were told that we had to schedule a certain amount of vacation time on certain dates for a company wide summer shut down or risk attendance problems.
Problem is I already scheduled all of my vacation time otherwise and have travel plans (hotel reservations, flights, etc) that I cannot cancel.
I live and work in Ohio (right to work state - not working under contract) so it is my understanding that an employer can do just about anything they want but this really sucks.
Any thoughts or related experience? Can they really do this?
