    My boss wants me to complete my tasks first and then only take the leave

    I am working in a private company. I wanted to take a few days off to go for a vacation with my family as my family members are all free from their work at this time. We will not be getting such a chance for a long time after this. But my boss is telling me to first complete all the tasks and then only take my leave. I donít think this is fair. What to do in such a situation?

    Hello aspirant,
    Your boss is right to an extent. It is your duty to finish your work off in the assigned time. You should've pulled it up initially only. It's understandable that your family members are free right now and this is the time you all can vacation out, but if you don;t complete your work your peace of mind will also not be there and your boss will also not be pleased.
    So, postpone your vacation by some days and pull up your work at the maximum. Sit overtime and work whole heartedly and achieve the set targets and make your boss happy. This will fetch you good returns in the future. Afterall after your vacation, it will be your job only that will be of supreme importance. So don't mess with it and give work priority.

    Good luck

    Dear Friend,
    Don't blame your boss, he is right. This is his duty. He can't give you the permission, otherwise who will complete that task.
    And if you have planned to go for the vacation earlier then you should have completed your work beforehand,then there have been no such problem and yo can have enjoy with your family.
    If there is still some time then complete the task first and enjoy afterwards or assign your task to your best colleague-cum-friend.
    If this dose not works then you have to choose either the job or the vacation.

    Hello Aspirant,

    It is true that office works are more important for your boss & leave to go home with family members is more important for you.There has to be a point of adjustment between these two situations.It is also true that you can't move unless your leave is sanctioned by your boss.So first of all you think of urgency of office works & time required to complete it.If it is not so urgent or if it can be completed in one or two days,you can do it & then make your boss happy to leave for home.If it requires more time & is not so urgent,you can say the same thing to your boss & assure him that you will do it as soon as you come back from your home.

    Your boss may be convinced & you may get your leave sanctioned to move for home happily.If relation with boss is not good,you won't have peace in mind which is a disturbing factor for whole life.So try to maintain a good relation with your boss.

    Good luck.

    many of the persons are complain their boss regarding to this problem.
    some time when the boss said that you have to finish the work first first and after you can be going to your holiday.
    Then we just think that how rude the boss is but if you think if you think from the boss point of view then you'll be realized that how difficult it is.
    The boss does not want to target you she/he just saying to you that if you'll finish your work at proper time then you'll be go to any vacation without any tension.

    Dear Aspirant,

    Yes,your boss would naturally like to get the official work done first before you go on leave,because he may have to report to his boss.In this case it would be better to calculate time needed to complete the works & if it is possible to do it first & then to move for leave,it would naturally make your boss happy.Also you should count the urgency of the work.

    If it is not possible to do the works first,request your boss to sanction leave & move on leave after its sanction.If you face any problem in getting its sanction,enclose a medical certificate for any of the family members along with the leave application & move on leave.

    So see the situation & do accordingly.

    Thanks & good luck.

    dear friend

    you are not only person who is
    facing such problem due to boss.
    there are a number of person who
    are in such situation. you are
    working in a private firm so your
    boss have full authority to do this.
    as he wants the work done before
    anything. so i think you have to ask
    him if he allow you to take leave,
    otherwise finish your work then join
    your family.

    hope this will help you

    Dear Friend

    You must give greater priority to your work as it is your career.You cannot give more priority to something other than work .

    First of all complete the work in time and then discuss the matter that you want leave to enjoy the vacation with your family.

    If you will finish the work in time and accurately then boss will be surely impressed with you then he might think about giving you leave .

    Be polite while discussing the matter.Never show aggression tell him the genuine reason ,he is also a human being and he will definitely understand the your reason for leave .

    Hope the information helps you and if you any other query related to it then please leave it here .

    all the best

    If your boss is not allowing you to go for vacation with your family and asking for complete your work first in the office then only go for vacation then you should try to manage your work first because work is most important and you should prefer it first and more than other things but family is also essential and as you have mentioned that you will not be able to go on vacation after this trip then you should try to make to understand your boss over this matter and I am sure that if you will make them realize that you will complete your all work just after coming back in few days so they will approve your vacation at this time and if work is less so you also should try to finish that work on time if you want to get leave to go with family and if possible then try to complete at the day of holiday in your office as on sunday and stay for long time in office to complete your work and if your boss will see your dedication to the family then you may get leaves

    All the best
