What are the rights for a person who has a mental and physical injury such that the person is dependent upon his/her legal guardians to get to and from work?
Situation is as follows:
person employed w/ department store for 9+ yrs (full time). Requests his 2 wks vacation in advance during summer (before school starts and kids with part time summer jobs at clothing/hardware store start school). Person is aware that as fall is just aroun corner and Xmas on the way; it will be busy time for company to allow for vacation. Person is dependent on legal guardians. Legal guardians taking 2 week vacation and taking subject. Subjects position is cashier. Company stated that they only approved one week. Therefore since, subject was gone 2 weeks, this is a case of job abandonment and is officially terminated.
