My admin won’t let me off for Yom Kippur.
Throwaway account. I’m a public school teacher.
I followed up with my admin about a time off request I put in a couple of weeks ago. Apparently I’m not allowed off for Yom Kippur, no explanation given. It was just rejected and I was told I’m needed here. I even explained it was for a religious holiday.
I know it’s illegal but I can’t afford to change jobs right now, so I don’t want to threaten legal action. My principal doesn’t particularly like me and I don’t know why, she just tends to play favorites.
I just wanted to vent. I live in a non-union state and I’m not tenured. I hope I pass out from fasting so I can maybe get out.
