The question is this:
This was not a company-specific question. Even before I edited the question, it was clear that I was asking about a universal practice about whether it's generally considered acceptable to even ask about it in any workplace. If this were company-specific, I would have just taken care of it myself and asked my superiors.
I was starting to remove this account, for several different reasons, but it's taking long enough for me to start to think about changing my mind. But I wanted to know whether it was generally considered bad practice to even ask your bosses about this, this was clear from before I edited the question, and people shouldn't have to edit their questions and run to meta every time they don't word something with the same quality as a best-selling novel.
Please reopen. Thanks.
(Wasn't sure to tag this with
support. One of them was basically required, so I just went with both for now.)
