 JJ 01/04/2008 13:29:29 Re: Unpaid leave If my salary range is more than RM1,500 ie not within the Employment Act, does that means that company has a right to set policy on calculation of certain matters for eg. if I take unpaid leave for every monday and work 4 days, is the unpaid leave to be computed as follows:i) RM3,000/ 5 = RM600or ii) RM3,000/31 x 5 = RM483,87or iii) RM3,000/26*5 = RM576.92should the denominator always be 26 days or 22 or 31 days?thank you Edit | Delete

 KL Siew kl_siew@yahoo.com 01/04/2008 16:49:47 For unpaid leave, ii) is correct for months having 31 days. Edit | Delete

 JJ 02/04/2008 08:50:47 Thank you for your prompt reply. Could you provide me the source for taking 31 days? I need to put this forward to my company's management as currently, their practise is i) ie divide by 5 based on 5 days in a week.Thanks again. Edit | Delete

 JJ 02/04/2008 09:10:25 Sorry, please ignore earlier query and Thanks for your prompt reply.Could you provide me the source for taking 31 days? I've noticed that for annual leave, the calculation is based on 26 days whereas unpaid is based on 31 days. Are both calculation from the Employment Act? Will management argue that this basis is not consistent and not fair.I need to put this forward to my company's management as currently, their practise is i) ie divide by 5 based on 5 days in a week.Can the management instead of deducting unpaid leave request the staff to extend service to the next month ie. staff's last day is end April but took 2 days unpaid leave in April (since exhausted all annual leave), and requested by management to serve till 5 May 2008 (without pay since to compensate the 2 days unpaid)Thanks again.
