Hi all. While I lived in England I received 4 weeks holiday of which 2 weeks could be carried over, plus public holidays and comp time. On my return here, I got 2 weeks, no carry over, no comp time. Never got better than that for the past 14 years. My current employer allows no time off whatsoever, not even sick leave. James Cohen, PE

I know what you mean. My current employer is a slave-driver as well. When I had surgery a couple of months ago, followed by about a month when I should have been "convalescing," my employer BODILY got me up out of bed, dressed and to the office. He FORCEFULLY sat me down and got me to begin working.

When I complained, he threatened to tell my wife.
