Employee Resigns Amidst Boss’s Attempt to Cancel Annual Leave, Sparks Viral Outrage

n a recent workplace incident that has gone viral, an Australian employee named Noel has made headlines after resigning from his job due to his boss’s last-minute attempt to cancel his scheduled annual leave. The story, shared on TikTok by user Michael Sanz, sheds light on the contentious exchange between Noel and his boss, Nick.

Details of the Incident

According to Sanz, Noel’s boss informed him that another staff member’s resignation necessitated the cancellation of Noel’s upcoming leave.

Expressing frustration at the lack of prior discussion, Sanz commented on the boss’s automatic leave cancellation.

Noel, in response, explained the importance of his planned family trip to Bali, emphasizing that flights were booked seven months prior, and he had commitments related to his brother’s wedding. Despite Noel’s efforts to negotiate, the boss suggested reducing the leave from three weeks to three days, questioning what could be done in Bali for such a duration.

The text exchange concluded with Noel indicating he would be sending the exchange to HR, marking a turning point in his commitment to the workplace. Michael Sanz, commenting on the situation, commended Noel for his handling of the matter and suggested that businesses should manage leave without disrupting their employees’ plans.

Some proposed humorous alternative responses, while others criticized the boss for the lack of consideration.
