"Unauthorized leave was regarded as a truancy"
The court has taken into account that:
- there was no proper evidence to support the granting of leave;
- the vacation period is not agreed upon in the schedule of vacations;
- the employee did not belong to those who can use the vacation at a convenient time for themselves.
As a result, unauthorized leave was regarded as a truancy. A similar approach back in 2004 was formed by the Supreme Court of Russia. The conclusion about the legality of dismissal is confirmed by judicial practice.
