    Notice period dispute

    Notice period dispute 17th May 17 at 10:37 AM
    I require to hand in 1 months notice. I have noticed that a member of staff will be on holiday within my month notice period and I am conscious that my employer will dispute my notice leave and request I work more than the 1 month required. I am wondering where I stand should my employer request I stay longer
    Thanks

    They can only ask you to stay longer than your contractual, they can't insist.

    They can however refuse to let you take any accrued holiday during your notice period and opt to pay you for it after you leave.

    If your contractual notice period is 1 month, they cannot force you to give more than 1 month. The fact that it may leave them short staffed is a problem for them to resolve, not for you to worry about.
    Sadly, there is very little loyalty these days. If they wanted / needed to 'let you go' you can be pretty certain they wouldn't give more notice than legally required.

    I wouldn't worry about it, this isn't your worry - you'll be out of there soon, they will cope.

    We've a Supervisor who for the people they aren't so fond of, for reasons unknown will literally forget to enter their holiday on the rota planner so you can imagine the back fire that is going to create as I've just noticed holiday authorised nearly 2 months ago not showing and seems to have allowed someone else to book leave at same time, I tell myself I'm covered as had received the email back confirming as authorised. I will be taking the holiday after waiting 6 months and having confirmation before the other colleague, it's a shut case. Far from the easiest thing to bring up but I'll have to face it head on as it's not like I'm going anywhere. See it could be worse!!

    This doesn't make sense. If the other person is off during your notice, then you are already there to cover for them.

    It is unclear.

    The OP wrote that they were concerned the employer could dispute their "notice leave". That could suggest that the OP was planning to take (pre-booked?) leave during their notice period.

    If that were the case the employer could cancel the leave but they could not extend the notice period.
