Do I have a right to sick days, personal days, and vacation days?

You need to ask your prospective employer whether you are entitled to sick days, personal days, and vacation days. There is no law that guarantees you such paid days off. If you work for an employer with fifty or more employees, and you have worked long enough to qualify, the Family and Medical Leave Act entitles you to up to twelve work weeks of unpaid leave during any twelve-month period for the birth or adoption of a child; to care for your spouse, child, or parent with a serious health condition; or for a serious health condition that makes you unable to perform the functions of your position.
