    Hi, can anyone tell me if my employer has the right to cancel some of my annual leave with only 2 weeks to go. They say they don't have enough cover for my job.

    Generally yes they can - the times at which you take annual leave are at your employer's discretion. That said it's not great employment relations to do it, particularly if you have plans or had something booked in pre-COVID times. Can you push back and say you've already committed to things because you booked the time off in advance? While their lack of holiday cover isn't your responsibility it's an excuse they can technically use to revoke your annual leave.
