“Hi, i will like to seek advise from any HR expert here. Is it considered power harassment if your boss asked you how you spent your annual leave and tell you to not take leave if there is nothing urgent? Is taking leave doing nothing but rest not allowed?
I am very angst because it was the first time i took a week of leave. I have been covering for colleagues when they were away for a month or so. Although this job pay well, but it is affecting my mental health. I am hoping to get die just because i dont want to go to office to see people who have never welcomed or valued me. I am feeling like a rubbish for being blame of everything.”
Here are what netizens think:
- This kind of job I will immediately start looking for job and once I get more than 3 interviews, I start play MC.
- Ask for formality is okay, afterall boss will need someone to cover you and that reasoning will be passed across yeah? But If keep questioning as though you are being interrogated, then probably something wrong. (Unless they have given notice that really need you to be present for that week for some major activities and manpower is short, etc)
- U r allowed to spend your leave day and do whatever u wanted to. Your boss should not discouraged u to not take leave. If your leave is unused will it be forfeited or can it be encashed?
- Annual leave is an entitlement, not a privilege. Therefore you can use it anytime, they cannot ask for what either… Only thing is if it is a packed period, then someone will have to cover you on top of their own work
