major Banks have suspended vacation time from dec 1, 1999 thru jan into the new year : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Talked to a friend who works for a major Bank in the cash vault and he told me that he got notified that no vacation time will be allowed in the month of dec 1999 thru to jan2000. If anyone else out there who is working for a major bank can you tell us if this is being instituted across the board with all banks.

That's a laugh Mike, they will very likely be on permanent vacation before the year is out... :)

Mike, a VP at the local branch of a large bank told me all vacations had been cancelled for Dec & Jan. She's not too happy as she normally takes 2 weeks at that time. Back in Feb we started asking her about y2k and she really didn't know much about it. Guess this got her attention big time.

Banks are full of women. No vacation during the Christmas season is really gonna flame every women in ANY industry. We're usually the one's who host those things and spend the time, money, and effort to perform the Holiday Ballet. We're about to hear shrill screams from all over the country. Are you "awake" yet, sister? It's NOT a sexist's just the TRUTH.

I work at a major bank. NO vacations from mid December until February. Of course sick leave is always an option.

I predict a major epidemic will hit towards the end of the year... :-)

I too work for a major bank..the information given to us was that it was our departments manager discretion,but usually managment will side with the corporation,so you and I know what that means. I always take Christmas week off,I don;t think that will change(with or without approval)... the reason given for the supension of the dec vacations??increased traffic in the branches!!

FDIC bank examiners were told several months ago that all annual leave between October 1 and the end of the year was on hold. Don't exactly know why; probably a CYA PR stunt by the brass.
