Holiday refusal
« on: 14-01-19, 06:19PM »
A holiday form was handed in 10 days ago and the manager has signed and dated it saying the request hasn’t been approved but hasn’t spoken to the colleague about it or given the form back to them, they just left it laying around the office.. would  this mean the colleague can assume they have the holiday?

By policy "If you have not had a response in seven days, you can assume your request has been authorised.".

But this whole finding it in the office sounds rather suspect, was it really just laying around in the office, or was it left somewhere specifically for the colleague.

As far as I know it was alongside the holiday diary on the desk but not specifically left there for them to see

Guess it depends on how much your colleague wants the holidays.

I would perhaps suggest your colleague forgets ever seeing the denied holiday request form, take the holidays, and if any comeback from management materialises, print out the policy and use that as defence.

The policy is that the employee should be told if they cannot have a holiday and then a compromise agreed if possible. As suggested carry on as though the holiday is granted. Nobody told you that is was not !

If you need a holiday don't ask for it go sick.

Clearly the holiday is yours as your manager shows a clear disregard for policy. Say nothing and wait for the form to be handed to you, when it finally does then explain the 7 day rule and say "if you don't reverse your decision I will appeal to the store manager". Watch them squirm.
