Many are aware that in the US, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) does not require compensation for time not worked. And that includes vacations, sick leave, or federal and other holidays. While, in many other countries, workers are guaranteed 4 to 6 weeks of vacation annually, plus they can additionally request unpaid time off. Is that the American Dream they were talking about?

And although many employers are understanding and provide both paid and unpaid time off for their workers, others are abusing the lack of law regarding the holiday. Recently, a registered nurse on Twitter shared a post saying she was denied time off work for her wedding. Post went viral and more people started sharing stories of important times in their lives when their time off work was denied.

Take a look at some of these rather infuriating stories and tell us if you’ve been denied time off when you really needed it?
