If one wants to quit their job that has a notice period of 3 months in 1 month and the company disagrees, what is the penalty of doing so nevertheless in France?

Also suppose the employee agrees to the 3 months notice period but wants to take a months due leave off, can the manager deny the same? I have been told that the vacation is on the managers discretion.

    The law may be (almost certainly is) different in France, but in England and Wales the employer can sue for breach of contract. Depending on their losses, this could be for quite a large sum. Holiday in E&W is indeed at employers discretion, but you have to be paid for holiday you are due but haven't taken. – Martin Bonner supports Monica Nov 20 '19 at 15:37
