"I won't be in tomorrow, I have some business".
"Do you have enough time?"
"Yeah, I have 10 days left"
"Okay; have a good day".
(Use'em or lose'em)
Management thuggery sets up draconian rules like you are referring to: "miss one day of work and you're fired!" What kind of cap is that? Non union companiens have PTO, so you're just making it up as you're going along I think.
You can dance without a lawyer
nope using a sick day to protest is fraud.
nope most companies have the same policy and people are fine it with. companies got tired of people abusing sick days and then needing off when they were really sick.
most companies do not have PTO time only a few here and there. most have vacation/personal/sick.
what you mentioned would be personal time not sick time.
sick time is reserved for being sick.
you not calling into work in any company is grounds for termination union or not.
