There are many religions on this planet, and many of them believe some things that would sound a little odd someone not of that religion. When I find out who did that, I will that person out of my department.
What’s it like to be a leap year baby? I talked with 8 of them to find out. - Vox
She saw she was a bad manager and decided not to go down that career path. That was actually a different story! I was thinking of the beer run letter which Pebbles mentions. Is it? Oh wow. That first update especially was so insanely lacking in self-awareness, glad to see that the harshness of the Chair Leg of Truth seemed to have finally broken through. Then they were saying unkind things about her on Snap Chat. The manager fully admitted she wanted to force the woman out of the department. OP did realize her error in subsequent updates. Every update I read saw her continuing to try to justify her behavior.
The OP appears in the comments of the original post, which is where things really went off the rails. Do you know what name the OP uses?
If you search for comments by Alison, I remember she replied directly to the OP in the comments at least once. Here is the link to an update, since Pebbles is posting the original. I probably messed something up. Anyhow, the update links that everyone else posted link back to it, so yay team AaM! Except that OP did some soul searching after the whole situaiton blew up in her face and realized how wrong her approach had been. Yes, but that one had a decent employer, who actually took action AND the OP did wake up and smell the coffee.
Yes, it took some hard slaps from reality as well as the very blunt responses from Allison and the commenters, but they DID eventually get it. I came to comment as soon as a finished reading 1. Bet the employees are wishing they could tear this boss into pieces and throw every piece into a fire. It is punitive. You get 20 days for three years out of four, because you were born on the wrong date.
Aside from the issue of oddly complaining about it, you are an excellent employee. Agreed on on the problem being the OP more than the company. He seems to have no critical thinking skills whatsoever.
What are they going to do if you come in on your birthday? It would annoy me, tbh. I personally like to go for too many? ANY flexibility in this would be preferable. My company had a birthday float day, but since I was born on Christmas, I always used it for a nice summer picnic. In my home town, many of my peers who needed full time jobs right after finishing or leaving high school went to work at a chicken processing plant.
That employer had a mandatory paid-leave birthday policy, which seemed to be due diligence to avoid young drunk or high employees being unsafe to work in the hazardous environment.
Knowing many of the employees and their approach to birthdays, I thought it was a progressive and sensible policy. This is bonkers! I missed that part in the original letter. It makes no sense! My company does not announce it when we get paid, either. Does this mean that, if it skips giving me a paycheck or two, that I am not missing out on anything? Honestly, it sounds like it would be way easier on everyone if, instead of these crazy leaps of mental gymnastics to justify not giving Leap Day Employee her day off and gift card, they would just give her the day off and the gift card.
They definitely get the 2nd off.https://hukusyuu.com/profile/2020-10-21/mit-pc-in-handy-hacken.php
Before you continue...
According to OP, if your birthday falls on the weekend or a holiday, you get the next working day off. And you still get the gift card and name-recognition on the cake. Yes, that is maybe the most bonkers part of the original letter — the idea that a public announcement is what makes a day off and gift card valuable???
If this policy existed at my job and I was told one of my staff could only have their birthday off every 4 years, I would be fighting tooth and nail for them or I would just give them a day off and gift card and deal with the consequences myself! So… by this logic since she only has a birthday every 4 years, and I am guessing she is probably around 40, does that mean you are technically employing a 10 year old?
This is absolutely ridiculous and I would be very upset too. Just ask her which day she likes to celebrate her birthday during non-leap years, whether it is February 28th or March 1st and let her celebrate her birthday and have the day off then. I never would have thought that we would need anti-birthday discrimination laws but here we are now. Now I am really curious about that. Also, thanks OP1, for embarrassing the nation internationally! Seems like a lot of the countries that have made the religion illegal do so because the followers refuse to engage in mandatory military service.

That is pure Putin. It explains why when I read the update, I read with a really weird Russian accent. OP could be French Canadian…. Would explain the stubbornness. Whether JW is illegal in France I believe it is considered a cult over there has no bearing whatsoever on French Canadians. What an unpleasant comment. Signed, married to French Canadian and living in Montreal. OP1 said she is Canadian but based elsewhere.
Jehovah Witnesses are not illegal in Canada. Yes, in places like Germany there are laws for example, on cults, look up in wikipedia the Freedom of Religion in Germany article, it notes JWs specifically because of their not participating in German society public law issues, state elections, would not respect the Grundgesetz. We also got thrown in concentration camps for not supporting Hitler. Us being called a cult hurts me so much to read…. The recent objections here in the Netherlands are about them NOT handing child-abusers to authorities and shushing the victims.
The more common complaint is that they should leave people alone already, and not use their children to pressure people to let them in. This is because of things around blood transfusions for children, strict educational practices, etc. Religious organizations that wish to qualify as nonprofit associations with tax exempt status must register. State level authorities review registration submissions and routinely grant tax-exempt status, and if challenged their decisions are subject to judicial review.
Organizations that apply for tax-exempt status must provide evidence through their statutes, history, and activities that they are a religious group. So basically the church itself may not be recognized as a religious a not for profit everywhere, but the people are able to freely practice their religion. At least within the last some decades.
That seems…highly unlikely.

Is the OP actually in Canada? If so, they are very out of touch with norms and objective reality. I missed that OP is based elsewhere. Maybe somewhere that is much more rigid in its approach to policy? I admit I am tempted to Google search for which countries label JW a banned cult. See my note above: Yes, in places like Germany there are laws for example, on cults, look up in wikipedia the Freedom of Religion in Germany article, it notes JWs specifically because of their not participating in German society public law issues, state elections, would not respect the Grundgesetz.
Altough I know a few JWs in Germany who have never reported any issues to me.
They are from Canada, but do not work in Canada. I am guessing they are in the Soviet Union or Spain, based on google results. Likely not Spain. In Spain, like Germany, mentioned about, the person who has the birthday brings the cake.
