To stop employees submitting leave requests for certain dates, go to the Leave page, click the 'Tools' menu and select Leave Embargoes. 

Choose a start and end date for the embargo, and then pick the employees to apply it to.

Leave Embargoes have no effect on leave that's already been requested or booked, so existing leave records will stay where they are after a Leave Embargo has been added.
