If you are still working with a company and you were sick for a day or had an emergency --- you however do not want to get paid for PTO for the day you missed. Can they (A) Force you to take the PTO hours, (B) Take the PTO hours that without paying you? T

Working in Florida and the company I work for has decided that if you should miss a day for any reason, even though you have decided that you are ok with getting paid for just the 4 days you have worked, they will either:
(A) Force you to take the PTO hours
(B) Take the PTO hours that without paying you?

This is PTO hours that you earned per end of the week. Is this legal

The employer can require that you burn up or use the PTO for days not worked, but of course they will have to pay you those hours. Put another way, you can't take time off from work and expect that your bank of PTO remains unaffected. Hope this helps.
