Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Why are you leaving, did you resign or are they dismissing ?
Hello, sorry I was offline by the time you had replied. It is entirely legal and normal to count any leave as part of the notice period. For example, if an employee is serving notice, the employer can force them to take any outstanding leave as part of their notice period. They do not have to but they can certainly do so. The same applies to your situation – you had pre-booked leave but were issued with notice of termination – it really does not matter if part of your notice period is served as holidays or not, a holiday day is not treated any differently from a legal perspective. So I am afraid the employer has not done anything wrong here.
I'm sorry if this is not necessarily the answer you were hoping for, however I do have a duty to be honest and explain the actual legal position. This does mean delivering bad news from time to time. I hope you understand and would be happy to provide any further clarification if needed. If you are still satisfied with the level of service I have provided regardless of the contents of the answer, I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating by selecting 3, 4 or 5 stars above. Thank you
