    Does an employee who has more then 20yrs working has more rights than the one who has only 5yrs?

    From my working experience as an employee and not in terms of management. Someone with less  tallied working years could unsurp you if h/she is employed higher up in the heirachy; or, for some reason has a greater personal click with the heirachy. It's not right but unfortunately it can be like that. Maybe you can make a horizontal move in your workplace rather than think of how you are stuck in the enforced heirachial system?

    This really depends on the workplace. If you are at a unionized workplace, they give preference to people based on how long the person has been there - seniority. However, non-unionized workplaces don't and tend to go on merit, not age.

      Thank you, it's because my co'worker and I asked to get a week off this coming holidays but we were told that someone else had asked for 2 weeks off and that, that person had more right than us because he has more then 20yrs working here.
