Last-minute holiday requests explained by Jack Khurana for the Daily Mirror

12 July 2021

Employment Partner Jack Khurana has been featured in the Daily Mirror, on the topic of whether employers should grant short-notice requests for time off.

Using the Euro 2020 matches as an example, the article explains what rights employees have within their employment contracts, and the path employers are likely to take.

Jack says: “Some organisations may have no choice but to refuse holiday requests to avoid being short-staffed. Organisations are likely to be receiving multiple requests from staff for time off to watch the match – or to recover the next day! In those situations, the employer should follow their annual leave policy, which may mean granting holiday requests on a first come, first served basis.”
