Can I take a vacation or sick day?

You are paid only for the hours you work. There is no compensation for sick days. You must contact your supervisor to let them know you will not be able to come to work and provide a valid reason. Because the program runs for only 6 weeks, there will be no vacation allowances during Mayor's Summer Youth Employment Program (MYSEP) job placements. If you have a vacation planned during this time, you must provide dates prior to being hired and it most likely it will influence your employment opportunity with the program.
