Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. Did your granddaughter discuss holiday with them before accepting the position?
At the initial interview she was told not to book any holidays, but as she had heard nothing in 2 months she assumed that she had not got the job.
Ok but once she was offered the job did she discuss it with them?
was it before she accepted the position?
No after she had accepted the position
Ok thanks, ***** ***** your Granddaugher an employer is under no obligation to allow a holiday in these circumstances. Under the Working Time regulations an employer can refuse annual leave if it cannot accommodate it providing the employee is not denied the right to leave in the leave year.
It would have been best for your granddaughter to have agreed the holiday before agreeing the post.
She can, of course, complain about this but there is nothing legally she can do.
I am really sorry that this is not the answer you were hoping for.
If you have any further questions please ask. If i have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the bes.t
