    Hi I work in a clothes shop and a family member is getting married a few days before Christmas but apparently people can't take holidays in the week leading up to Christmas. I'm wondering if I would be allowed unpaid time off or if I prove I've got a wedding, they might let me? I really don't want to miss this wedding! I'm also a little disappointed about having to work Boxing Day but that's retail I guess

    If it's retail they probably won't budge so it's up to you if you want to risk a disciplinary action over it.

    If they won't give it you, you will just have to be sick that day.

    And if you've already asked for the day off, they'll know you're lying

    It doesn't matter because they can't prove it.

    You have tried doing the right thing by taking it as holiday but you can't miss a family wedding so they are giving you no other option really.
