The Need of the Job makes it Permissible to Delay the Hajj
Question:

For three years I have submitted requests to my employer so that I may perform the obligation of Hajj. However, the requests have been denied, as the work needs me. Is there any sin on me for that? Is there any sin on me if I perform Hajj without them knowing or without their agreement?
Answer:

Yes, as long as you are restrained by someone else against your will, there is no Hajj for you until after attaining the agreement of that person. If the need requires that you stay (and not go for Hajj), there is no harm in that until the need goes away, either by someone else filling in for you or by some other method.
