Can companies deny PTO?
California employers can legally create rules and limits about vacation time, giving them the right to deny your request in certain situations. However, state law prohibits any employer from denying vacation requests because of race, gender, religion, or other reasons that are considered discrimination.
Can an employer make you work a different position?
Yes, in some cases. Generally, unless an employment contract or a collective bargaining agreement states otherwise, an employer may change an employee’s job duties, schedule or work location without the employee’s consent.
Can you discriminate against part-time workers?
Yes, such discrimination is prohibited by the Part-time Workers (Prevention of Less Favourable Treatment) Regulations. Part-time workers have the statutory right, from day one of their job, to be treated the same as comparable full-time workers – that is, workers on the same type of contract with the same employer.
Can my employer refuse flexible working hours?
There are only limited reasons why your employer can refuse your statutory flexible working request. However, your employer is not allowed to discriminate against you when making a decision. You can check if refusing your flexible working request is discrimination.
Can protected PTO be denied?
All employers in California must abide by all FMLA and CFRA regulations without exception. However, an employer has every right to deny an employee’s request to use accrued vacation time or paid time off, but the employer must usually provide some kind of reasonable explanation.

What to do if your job application is denied?

Can an employer deny my request to change from full time?
An employer can set the work hours. The employer seems to have a legitimate non discriminatory rationale for the schedule decision. I have no clue what law the employer is talking about but it seems to me you need to speak with a CA employment lawyer because they may be violating FMLA as well as other state laws as well.
When to request a change from full time to part time?
It may be that the employee is planning to enroll in school to seek a degree. If this is the reason, and it will be beneficial to the position held, make sure and explain this to the employer. There are other extenuating circumstances that could require a change from fulltime to part time.
What happens when you get rejected for a job?
