This actually happened to my husband 3yrs ago. He was a Mickey Firework Shirt (fly in fly out) worker and was the 2ic on a mine site. His older brother gave us a month’s notice for his wedding date and it coincided with a holiday that my husband’s manager had already booked out. Since my husband was the stand in, there was no one else to stand in for him. The boss wasn’t interested in getting another person up on site to help out either so he rejected his leave application. Now my husband’s family live by the moral that family comes first, no matter how arseholish they can be – read 1month notice even though BIL had been engaged for 2years. So for big life events like a wedding, family is expected to show up.

So hubby ended up resigning to attend his brother’s wedding and the boss was left without Mickey Firework Shirt in charge – it wasn’t my husband’s problem to deal with. We ended up living on my income alone for a good 4months whilst planning our own wedding. No appreciation from BIL either for what my husband did, in fact he called him an idiot for not having a job lined up… But the moral of the story is, my husband does not regret quitting and would do so again. Even though FIFO work was certainly amazing financially, my husband’s overall mental and physical health greatly benefited. If the company you work for won’t support you in extraordinary situations, then they certainly don’t deserve your loyalty.
