I have been saving and planning for my tummy tuck for months now and I gave my boss 2-1/2 months notice and I have the PTO for it and everything. I am planning it for Aug 25th and coming back Sept 6th. This is only 7 days of actual work days I would be taking off, but gives me 12 days of recovery time. He just told me no, that the office can't handle me being gone that long. Our company makes it very easy to work from home and I planned on doing just that. He said no. He is arguing with me because his wife's surgery last year took 3-4 weeks recovery time and she was on pain meds forever and all that. Well I am 31 and she is mid 50's, so I think there's a bit of an age gap there and I would think that might have a factor on the different recovery periods. 2 doctors told me 10 days for me, several friends said 2 weeks TOPS, others said 1 week they felt fine.
Can he do that? Can he just tell me no?
