I work part time and was receiving minimum 27 hrs a week for the last 1 year and 6 months. At that point three months ago, the new manager cut my hours to 20 hrs a week even though I did not agree. I was actually requesting more hours. It was also understood at the time of my hire ( 1 year 9 months ago) that I would take off a couple of months every year without pay. I need this to visit my family in another country and fulfill my obligations with them . This year I told the new manager I would take one month. Now the new manager has told me I can only have two weeks of vacation. This even though I have 85 hrs or $1200 vacation pay accumulated. This equals one month of work with my 20 hrs a week schedule. What if I take the month not authorized by the manager? Can they legally fire me from my job? What can I do about these changes to my employment that I have not agreed to? This is now a 20 hour a week minimum wage job with no flexibility. What notice must I give if I quit? Thank You Rose
