I have a subordinate who has gone on annual leave, he booked the time off with me through an online HR system.
When I mentioned to my team today that he was on annual leave it came to a surprise to them.
Normally, when people go on annual leave in our office, they email around and let people know a week before they go on annual leave. Also, when on annual leave an out of office notification is normally configured in Outlook. Neither are mandatory requirements of the role.
The subordinate has gone on annual leave and has not emailed the office or set his out of office status. I appear to be the only person he told.
This is regarding annual leave, not a resignation or being made redundant.
Is it up to me to inform people of my subordinates leave or is it up to the subordinate to inform people?
