Annual leave | Employee refused time off to attend OWN wedding

Employee refused time off to attend OWN wedding

Annual leave is an important part of every employee’s work experience. Whether this time is spent going on holiday, relaxing in the back garden or getting married, employees are able to use their annual leave as they please. However, an employee was refused time off to attend her own wedding, despite previously having it approved.

The bride-to-be took to Mumsnet to explain that she had started a new job and cleared the dates of her upcoming wedding and honeymoon with HR. However, her manager later told her that she couldn’t have the time off to attend her own wedding as it clashed with her own annual leave. The manager suggested that the employee rescheduled her wedding.
