My company has a rule to bring forward only 5 leaves from this year to the following year.
I was going to take my remaining leaves at the end of December. After some time passed, I decided not to go at the end of December, but in mid December.
But my manager will not allow me to take leave in mid December (I told him before I would be taking leave at the end of December, but hadn't applied on the system yet) and asks me to take leave at the end of December instead.
Does your manager have the right to control when you spend your leave?
