QUESTION: Is it appropriate to ask for 1-2 days off when on co-op for a family wedding?

  1. Unless it's a sibling, no (even then eh). Weddings aren't that important.

  2. Yes. A lot of people I know have taken days off for long weekends, etc. As long as you make it into a habit, there's no reason employers should care about you taking off one day during the whole term.

  3. I've taken days off for more trivial things - but every time I asked my manager, I had already worked an excess amount (in terms of hours, and work completed) than I was responsible for at that particular point in time. My manager(s) have had no problems with that.

  4. Ive taken off a week to go on a trip, just made up the time before/after. It was a lot of long days.

  5. Just ask for it. It is a legitimate reason. Depending on the company policy (& manager), they might not pay you for those days or they will ask you to work extended hours or they would not care and just give you a free pay day:) That is what happened to me in one of my companies.

    You should be glad, its not an Indian wedding otherwise you would be asking for a week off !
