We have a member of staff who has given there notice. The contarctural notice period is 1 month, and I understand statutory notice is only 1 week. They are very keen to leave before the months notice. They have 3 weeks notice, but the Line manager is saying they can not take it. I am concerned as there are no members of the team off during the notice period, and normally this time if taken as leave would be allowed.

There is some work to be handed over, but this could be done within the 2 weeks they wish to work.

Thanks for any advice.
