Can my construction employer take away my vacation time?

Add Answer

Please clear this up for me- Am I legally required to offer my employees sick time and vacation? Surprisingly, NO! Many construction employers are surprised to learn that they are not legally required to give their employees paid time off. Despite this legal leeway, however, most construction employers do offer some variety of paid leave. A generous leave policy can help you attract high-quality employees and improve office productivity and morale. If you decide to adopt a policy that gives your employees paid vacation or sick time, be sure to apply the policy consistently to all of your employees. If some employees receive a more attractive package than others, you might be vulnerable to a discrimination claim.
