Hello all....Can someone clarify...When holidays are granted by your line manager, is the onus on them to arrange for the cover or the employees.
This is a well known national company although i'd rather not say which one...
Many thanks in advance

Yes you are an employee. It's not your responsibility to organise your cover unless you are in a senior position.

@fearghalg..Thats what we all thought but were told different by our line manager..many thanks for that

If your absence has been approved that's all you need to think about.

@windym...thanks for your comment also

ask for a copy of your company hand book of policies. You are an employee so it is not your job to find cover for your anual leave!

My Son works for a national cleaning company and is asked every time he has a holiday if he is able to get a friend or family member to cover. He doesn't so mostly the building won't be cleaned at all.
