As a former HR Manager, I find that highly offensive. (Well, maybe not 'highly', but perhaps 'slightly' offensive...) HR is merely the scapegoat. They take orders just like everyone else. They are told they can spend "x" on benefits and then are told to "figure it out" when it comes to making it all work. Then when the employees don't like it, who gets to listen to the fallout? Poor, poor Catbert.

I know lots of people who plan sick days weeks in advance. What else can people do when requests for days off are routinely rejected? Of course management doesn't hear about the sick plan until 2 hours in advance, so it's always a surprise for them.

It seems like it would be better to routinely give the days off and know in advance when people aren't coming then to have only a couple hours of notice.
