    Pretty sure that they can't do that, especially given the notice given. May depend on your award/agreement etc. Tbh it's none of their bl**dy business why you need the day off!! What if it was for a specialist Appt? Where's the list of approved reasons!?

    Lol, sorry bit ranty there! I used to do rostering for a big business when I was 20/21/22 yrs old and we had a mostly causal roster base. As long as the leave request was in with plenty of time the managers could do FA! I loved seeing what others wrote - going to big day out, stereosonic etc and nothing they could do! However if ppl continually asked for every Sunday off for example then I was instructed to give them less hours on draft rosters.

    I think if you'd asked once the roster was out then they can say no but sounds like you haven't don't that. Hate the honesty can sometimes back fire

    Hmmm as you are a casual I believe you can advise your employer of when you are unable to work with appropriate notice (as per contract or policies/procedures). Everyone needs time away from work at some point regardless of employment status. Its just with being a casual they dont have to pay you holidays?

    I'm happy to update that my time off has been approved. I'm not so happy about the change to my regular shift. It went from 5-9.30 to 5-12.30. Bring on November when I can leave without consequences.

    Sent from my pho....oh who am I kidding. It's rarely used as a phone
