My manager informed me today that he/she was told to tell all his workers (anyone who reports to him) to refrain from submitting any PTO requests for the upcoming holidays through our employee portal (where we have always done it)
We are currently down to just 2 people (one being me), and the other person has already used a ton of PTO time.
PTO can still be requested, but each request is based on:
- Workload/Business Needs
- Seniority (There's two people...?)
- Available PTO
- Specific Dates
Is this something that is normal/ethical/allowed? I've never heard of anything like this being allowed - aside from days being allowed based off seniority.
