Revoking time off allready approved
Permalink   


Can Kroger (Fred Meyer) change the schedule if you were allready approved for time off & change it to where you no longer get those approved days off?... Especially if you got approved well in advance of their time frame for asking?... & have allready made plans, & spent money for whatever it is you were going to do?  I cant find an online policy at all about this & did not receive a FULL policy book when I was hired & dont know where to go to find the answer to my question.

Looks like somebody schedules a vacation during Memorial Day weekend lmfao. Everybody in retail knows that there are certain times of the year where you just can not take time off. Who promised you these days off?

It depends.  Was this scheduled vacation time?  If so then they can't take it away from you except in cases of extreme emergency.  An extreme emergency would be something like almost everybody in the whole department is out sick and they only have one or two people available for the entire week.  Being slightly shorthanded is not an emergency.   Was this after the schedule was already made out and approved.  At my store the schedule is suppose to be posted by noon and they have until 6 PM Saturday to make any changes.  After that they can't make any changes without your permission.

 If you've been with the company long enough to join the union and you're only going to be off one or two days, just call in sick if you have to.  Everybody else does.

Just my two rubber nickles here, but...

I say, if management approved your time off request, it IS approved. Period. Things may work to a slightly different groove for Kroger than they do for Wal-Mart...but not by much.

If you have documented proof of the schedule approval, take it to management---along with the things you said here, re how you already made personal and $$ commitments based on THEIR good faith---and stand by it, and put it to bed, and enjoy your time off. You deserve it....

BTW: Does Kroger have an associate on line account you can use to check your schedules? If so, print up a copy of the week you were approved.

When I don't get time off that I requested, I just call off. Nothing they can do about it except give you a strike (if you get enough strikes you get put on probation, and then you get two more before they actually punish you. Lateness counts towards strikes too. It goes away after 90 days so you just have to be careful.)

No, they can't. If you put a time off request in session F, and your management approves it, you are off, and as long as you put in the special pay request, you get your vacation pay. As for memorial day, our contract doesn't acknowledge any blackouts. You would most likely get denied those holiday weeks, but if it goes through they have to schedule you as requested.

Where do you rank in your department as far as seniority goes?  If someone else in your department is scheduled off on the days you want and you both can do the same job then you can request that you be off instead of or at the same time as the other person.  They're always suppose to go by seniority as long as all parties involved can do the job that's needed to be done.

 It seems to me that it is still approved for you to have the time off, if I'm reading this right.  You just need to speak to whoever does payroll, so that you may be paid for the time off as a vacation.
