i dont know but i thonk yes. what should i do?
Have you been suspended from work?
no just holiday
can they do this?
How long have you worked there for?
and they never had a problem with me like that
Once a holiday request has been approved, it is binding and can only really be varied with the consent of both parties. If the request had not yet been approved then the employer could have refused it by giving you certain notice, but this only applies if it had not yet been formally approved. If an employer has granted your request, you have relied on that to make plans and they later come back to you and tell you that you cannot take that holiday, then it would amount to a breach of trust and confidence on their part and they will not be acting in accordance with the Working Time Regulations which deal with holidays.
You have the right to take the annual leave which you have applied for and which has been granted.
thank you thats really helpfull
you cannot be forced to come into work, as far as you are aware you have officially granted leave which you are entitled to take. If the employer decides to take any formal action against you as a result then there is nothing stopping them but you can defend that and if they go ahead and dismiss, which I hope would not be the case, it can also potentially amount to unfair dismissal which you can challenge if necessary
You are most welcome. Unless you have further questions about this please take a second to leave a positive rating for the advice I have provided as that is an important part of our process. Thank you and all the best
