Do you allow vacation time around holidays?


Recommended Posts

I have employees that want to schedule and overlap vacation time around the holidays. Some want to schedule ALL their vacation time around ALL holidays. This is a constant struggle between being fair and balanced for all employees.

 

We are in a service business and during the holidays we are always busy.

 

I want to know how other shops handle this.

 

I know shop owners that will not anyone to schedule vacation time around a holiday.

 

Need advise...

That's a tough one and really depends on the size of your shop, the amount of employees you have, and if you can afford to not have one or two around the holidays.

 

I think it is reasonable to have black out dates for vacation.

I understand the need for people to take time off, and we do rotate Saturdays for that purpose. But like you said, durning peak times (such as holidays) we need a full staff. We are in a service type business. it could be worse, we could be a business that requires us to be here on holidays.

 

I guess what I am looking for is a fair policy. I can't allow senior poeple to dictate when they take their vacaction. I think the problem started with me. Years ago when I was not as big, it was not an issue. Now, we have 14 people on staff and I want to make sure people don't feel like they are not being fairly treated.
