what do I do in this situation??
Here is the back story:
I had booked vacation time well in advance, and booked my trip. About a week and a half before I am set to go, there is a schedualing conflict with the trip and transportation. The departure date is moved two days earlier, and will require me to have one additional day that I did not book off to make the trip. The trip has been paid for, and is past the minimum cancellation/rebooking period. I asked my employer for the one additional day, even going so far as to find a replacement for the hours (my third year apprentice). The boss came down and said that this puts them into overtime, I will not authorize that. I found a way that would work that would not cost OT, and still am getting the " I played by the rules, you booked from XX date to XX date". If I do not leave on the date required, I will forefit the cost of the travel, and the cost of the trip. I cannot afford to ust lose that amount of money, and am at a loss on how to proceed with my employer. I leave in 6 days, and if I cannot get this resolved, I don't quite know what to do. Anyone been in this situation or have any advice?
