    Quote from Ruby Vee
    You said you requested the vacation in January, but was it ever actually approved? Perhaps things are different in LTC, but it the ICU I would NEVER put down a deposit on a vacation without having had the time off approved in writing. Once it's approved in writing, if they change their minds there's a paper trail in your favor. Also, if you had your vacation approved before putting your money down, they cannot now say you need to find weekend coverage. And if they needed you to find your own weekend coverage, that should have been on the approval.

    The not picking up paystubs so they won't direct deposit your check is ludicrous. I've never heard of such a thing! Clearly those who work in the office have NO idea what working at the bedside entails.

    Just not going back to work is unprofessional -- but you knew that and hopefully the impuse to no call/no show has passed by now. Enjoy your vacation and be ready to start looking for a new job when you get back.

    I have NEVER heard of anyone **having** to pick up their paystubs,
    let alone having to pick them up or else no direct deposit?? That is

    I had one employer that told me they quit offering direct deposit altogether because people weren't turning in their paperwork (home health). Apparently, the payroll system automatically paid according to the hours worked and we know that almost all home health employers withhold your pay if the paperwork isn't turned in when they want it although the employment department says this is illegal. Employers don't care as long as they can get away with the practice. Going to the office to pick up your pay stub so the employer doesn't have to mail it to you? What a crock.
