I just moved my vacation to accommodate work. My company paid the difference in costs to move my flights and reservations to the next week. If I had to outright cancel, I would ask them to reimburse everything it costs you cancel. Financially, of course. Unfortunately, you can't bill them for an asshole tax for what it costs you in non-financial ways to have them mess with your personal life like that.

depends on your company policy. most times, they have to cover costs of cancellation and the fare/hotel difference of your trip.

Talent Acquisition teams: Are you all swamped and behind in your ATS processing right now? Asking as several colleagues and friends are actively submitting REFERRED applications for well-matched roles--but not hearing anything from HR. Is the need for talent real or is it overblown in the media? Or are a lot of TA people simply drowning at work or out on vacation right now? Tx for sharing if you are able! I'd like to give people some hope!
