Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Has your holiday actually been granted by the employer?
ok let me get my response ready please
not long just a few mins
Your employer has a legal right to reject your request for holidays by giving you a specified length of notice. The notice must be at least as long as the holiday you want to take (for example you want to take 10 days holiday – the employer can refuse your request if they tell you of that at least 10 days before the holiday is due to be taken). They do not need to provide any reasons for their decision.
When deciding on whether to grant your request, the employer can ask for whatever evidence they need. That could also include bank statements if they really wanted to. You cannot be forced to provide these if you did not want to, but at the same time the employer does not have to grant your holiday request if they do not want to and if they believe the evidence they have is not sufficient.
If they want a bank statement then you may wish to consider providing one, but you can also blank out any other transactions or personal information such as account numbers and balances.
I don't understand what you mean?
Well you just have to provide whatever proof you have, for example statements showing the cash was taken out but remember that the employer is not legally obliged to grant you the holiday request, even if you had all the evidence to support the booking
It does not matter if you booked the holidays before or after you started the job - the employer still has the legal right to refuse a holiday request if they wanted to.
Not at all
I am afraid so - they do not have to give you the time off. If you started a job and had pre-booked holiday you should have obtained a written guarantee before you accepted the job. If you did not, then there is no obligation on them to give you that time off and they do not have to pay you any compensaiton
Most employers would ask you if you had prebooked holidays before you start and agree to give you the time off in advance but if you did not come to such an arrangement then the risk is that your request for holidays can be rejected
you may have been asked but they must have also agreed to let you have the time off
Just becauise they asked does not mean they promised to allow you to have the holidays
well all you can do is plead with the employer, provide any evidence you have about the holiday and hope they eventually agree to allowing you to go, but you cannot force them to and in the end you will have to either go on unauthorised leave and face the potential consequences or resign to go on the holiday
No, thousands of parents want to take time off in the summer holidays or other holidays because their kids have time off then but there is no law that says you must be given time off during the school holidays
Well, not in England I'm afraid :(
Here it is first come first served and at the same time the employer can also decide whether to allow you to go or not
You can call in sick but it would very suspicious if you had tried to get it off as holiday before and it was rejected and then you conveniently become sick at exactly the same time. You can call in sick without a doctor's note for the first 7 days but it won't stop the employer taking it further if they believe it is not genuine
you are welcome all the best
