How can I fairly schedule staff’s summer vacations in advance?
Question: “We’re going to be incredibly busy this summer, and I’m already worried about employees’ vacations interfering with our delivery schedules. I want a system for employees to submit their summer vacation requests now. I hope that will let us make realistic staffing plans. But I know some staff are going to complain, and I’m worried that I’ll eventually have to disapprove some leave requests. What’s a fair way to handle this?” — Steve, IL
