[Histonet] time off

I start with the holidays. We rotate the major ones every year. When I set 
up the private lab I used to work at, I had it put in the H.R. policy that 
an employee could take 2 of 3 end of year holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, 
New Year's) on a rotating basis. If no one else put in for those times, 
then I would grant that request. I went out only 6 months at a time. We were 
expanding exponentially and I couldn't project what the work load would be 
like next week, never mind 6 months from now. All the other holidays were 
not a problem.

Those of you who are supervisors, how do you handle your co-workers asking 
for time off?  I have 2 employees that have asked off already (jan 3rd) for 
every day they want off for the entire year!  Do you grant them the days off 
since no one else has asked off yet, or tell them it's not fair to 
continuously get off around every holiday by asking off  5 - 12 months in
