I am curious how people handle employee requests for time off. My staple has been as long as you give a 2 weeks heads up we will comply with your request. Over the last year or so it has become a substantial issue where employees seem to be taking more and more weekends off. As an example, I have one employee who requests a weekend off about every 5 weeks or so. To me it seems excessive and I am looking for some input on what you consider excessive requests for time off and how you handle it.
