People would think that going into a family business would mean having an easier time, but I find that families expect more, plus it's difficult to come up with reasons or excuses. Also, there isn't that formal relationship where there has to be mutual respect and strict guidelines, meaning OP can be messed around and taken advantage of more due to them being family.

Canada is down there too. Only government workers, teachers and senior union members get three consecutive weeks. Some others get that much, but generally with a two week at a time limit on taking it.

I don't know about the laws in Romania but isn't this illegal in most countries? Even if it's family, shouldn't you have a contract stating exactly how much free days you can take and how early you have to give notice about it?
I feel sorry for you, your family is horrible...

too much missing info to make a proper judgement on this one. how long have you worked for them? how much vacation time are you given? is july a busy season for what ever business you were in? (i work hvac and getting more than a single day off between the end of june and sept without being in the hospital is impossible)

I agree op needs to provide us with more information before we can judge. Maybe op'll grace us with their presence and provide us with said information. Also #10 love the profile pic.

For all we know, op tries taking off constantly or is a bad employee in another way, and this may have just been the final straw. As with almost all FMLs, more information would be helpful, but I also don't want to read someone's life story. So we come here to the comments and have our own little brainstorming on what actually happened. That's where the real fun is. :)

That info is irrelevant. OP is allowed, by LAW, to use his/her vacation days any way he/she deems fit (it's not the US, you know). Work ethic has nothing to do with that. Only reason it can be denied is if it was too short notice, or business practice doesn't allow it.
