We put a new "Visitor Services Request for Time off Policy" in place a few months ago where anyone requesting time off, other than sick time, with less than 30 days' notice, must find their own coverage. If they can't find their own coverage, they should expect to work that day. This is especially needed during our busy seasons. Needless to say, several staff did not feel this was a fair policy even though we do find coverage for them with at least four weeks' notice. As a result of the concerns this stirred up, we told staff that we'll put this policy on hold with more time to review and benchmark with other museums.
I'd like to get some of your feedback on what is your time off policy?
