Just a quick question for those who know, if I am entitled to annual leave, doesn't employer have to let me take days off?
I only work 1 day per week at a small family run business but I have 2 days accrued for annual leave. I've been working here since feb this yr and have NEVER asked for a day off apart from a few sick days.
I am finishing up work on the 24th December as I'm pregnant and baby due end of jan, the business is closed for Christmas from 24th dec to 6th jan so not much point me coming back to work in jan anyway.
I asked my boss if I could take leave next week an she said no. I asked when I could take leave (DH and I want to go away to QLD for a 10 day holiday before christmas and before baby comes)
What are my rights here?
She's saying its unreasonable to ask for leave as i only have a few weeks left of work till I finish up and they are 'under the pump' but she does have another girl come in on Thursdays anyway to do the same job that I do...
