Today, I requested two hours off for tomorrow afternoon. My supervisor and manager called me into the office to talk to me about how important it is to be in the office as much as possible. A little later, my supervisor told me that for budgeting reasons, I have to take 3 non-paid days off. FML

You do understand why they did this, right? They saw that if you were willing to take time off when it's imperative you be in the office as much as possible, of course they picked you out of everyone else to take unpaid days off. Who do you think employers would cut first? The employees who take time off, or faithful employees that show up to work for their full hours every day? Makes sense to me.

if she needed the two hours off for a Dr's appt her boss should not care & be understanding. I'd suggest whenever she requested that to do it in advance and arrange to make up her hours later that week. But it could just be a coincidence that she has to take unpaid time off; the economy sucks for most companies!
