Q. How can we handle an employee who routinely uses vacation and sick time on Mondays? —D.M., Ohio

A. When an employee has a pattern of abusing sick leave to create three-day weekends, require a doctor's note. If the employee fails to produce a doctor's note, start using progressive discipline.

Regarding vacation, you have the right to deny any request for vacation time that interferes with your operations.

One way to do this is to dole out vacation time on the basis of seniority.
