RE: My boss keep rejecting my annual leave without proposing alternatives. What can I do ?

So, why do you not ask them for an alternative? i.e., "If that's not acceptable, what is?"

Is this guaranteed in your contract?

Is it time to dust off your resume?

Time for a new job

RE: My boss keep rejecting my annual leave without proposing alternatives. What can I do ?

You may actually have to talk to your boss and ask.

RE: My boss keep rejecting my annual leave without proposing alternatives. What can I do ?

So many unknowns here:

Is your leave request formal or informal?
How many times have you asked him or her?
Did they give a reason?
Is there a contract or agreed procedure?
How big is the company?
Is there an HR dept?
Does your boss have a boss you can talk to?
Why are you still working there?

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.

RE: My boss keep rejecting my annual leave without proposing alternatives. What can I do ?

Yes, talk to boss. If he/she refuses leave annually, then talk to HR.

Agree with LittleInch. We need more information.

I recently had an employee say on Tuesday he was planning to take Thursday and Friday of that week off. He was part of our production team that was already short staffed, and we had three project deadlines that week. He had made no plans to have someone take his workload so him taking off puts the entire team in a tough spot. Should that leave have been approved?

I'm very pro taking time off, but it helps if we can plan a bit.

RE: My boss keep rejecting my annual leave without proposing alternatives. What can I do ?

When I was working we had a saying, there's only TWO reasons why you can't take a vacation, either you haven't earned any, or you work for an a$$hole. I suspect that in your case it's the latter.

Did you miss a "t" out there John?

Talk about open ended questions...
Next one: "what is happiness?"

You take annual leave? Where do you go each year?
