Disclaimer: I have written an upvoted answer to following question.

This question was deleted by Community: https://workplace.stackexchange.com/questions/155297/can-i-be-forced-to-take-yearly-vacation-due-to-corona-virus-outbreak-germany

The question is asking about general rules for vacation enforcement by the employer. It's not a special situation the OP is facing, therefore I wouldn't categorize it as legal advice. It contained a slightly off-topic portion by asking if there is a sign for being fired, but that could have been removed easily.

Was the user deleted or what was the reason for not just closing it but immediately deleting it? Are there special rules for COVID-19 questions?

    @Kilisi: I noticed that maybe the user was deleted, but I'm not sure, because normally I cannot see deleted questions. – Chris Mar 23 '20 at 11:48
  • I have no idea, just voting to undelete, anything else the mods can look into. I'm just a lowly user. – Kilisi Mar 23 '20 at 11:49

    I cast the last undelete vote. Not sure why it was deleted, it looked like a perfectly valid question to me. In fact, my company is making people take previous year's remaining vacation right now, because of the reason I remarked on in a comment. It's certainly pertinent information to many people in germany right now. – mag Mar 23 '20 at 12:24

    digging into the timeline, it seems like the user that asked the question was destroyed by a moderator: workplace.stackexchange.com/posts/155297/timeline an hour ago. – mag Mar 23 '20 at 12:34

    Yup, part of a SPAM attack. – Neo Mar 23 '20 at 13:20

  • @gnat: I think your link is incorrect? This is about some other question? – guest Mar 23 '20 at 16:49
  • @guest see comment from moderator above, it explains that removal reason is the same as in linked answer (spam attack) – gnat Mar 23 '20 at 17:04

    @gnat: Yes, it's helpful. Maybe it could be more obvious in the deletion message? It's difficult to find the reason even if you look up possible reasons in the help center. – Chris Mar 23 '20 at 18:17
  • well a couple more reopen votes and it's back in action. – Kilisi Mar 23 '20 at 18:41

    Edited the question cause it needed some work and reopened. – Lilienthal Mar 23 '20 at 19:57
  • Good effort getting it undeleted and reopened. You had a solid answer as well. – Kilisi Mar 24 '20 at 8:56
