HiI requested from my employer 2days leave (8/9 August)

Customer Question

Hi

I requested from my employer 2days leave (8/9 August) due to Eid (islamiic Christmas) my manager has refused saying
"Given the current resource, I am not in a position to approve the below holiday request.
As per the team meeting and my email (attached), we are stretched from a resource point of view.
No further holiday would be agreed/approved for the remainder of July & August"

I am arguing that we are not stretched as no staff have holiday booked from 1st August to 15th August. Can my manager legally refuse to let me have this holiday?

Regards
