My employer offers health insurance to all full time associates. They also offer paid time off (Sick, Vacation, Personal...) they claim that because they offer benefits we cannot fall under 40 hrs a week. Is this by law or is this to protect themselves fr

If I want to take a day off and want it unpaid... HR tells me I cannot and I need to use one of my PTO days... is this a law?

Do you have any employment book: all such rules should be written there< However, you are already getting what you bargained for where you company is paying you for sick, vacation, and personal leave. Generally, they are 1 casual day for each month worked. You are not entitled to any unpaid day off. You have PTO pending, once you exhaust that then you can request anything else. Similar laws are applicable for FMLA. First your paid time would be adjusted, then the unpaid would come.
