Just a quick question in relation to the father inlaw

 

He's trying to book a week off at his workplace

 

He's been told he can book the weekdays but that it's company policy not to allow people to book Saturdays

 

Instead they have told him that he can only have the Saturday off if he swaps it with another worker

 

Is it legal to refuse to allow holiday just due to company policy or just bad practice?

As i recall Saturday working is common in his line of work?

 

If they want to, they can dictate every day he's allowed to have, with him having no choice at all; unless his contract says otherwise.

 

It does feel like everyone will be in the same boat so keen to cooperate?


Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

Yep sat work is common

 

Reading down his hand bo0k it doesn't say anything about not being allowed Saturday it seems to be a local managers decision 

 

The hand book basically says holiday decisions are made on the basis of the number of people off

it is all down to a catch all "operational reasons". If he gives enough notice the they have to respond in writing with their reasons for refusal under the WTD so the extra faffing about with written applications and refusals may determine how inportant this all is for their business if everyone followed the protocols to the letter.
