I would like to know, an employee, after giving three months notice (effective 15th May, leaving 15th August) is allowed to take unpaid leave for the whole month of august:- The situations: - the annual leave balance as at august is 4 days. - there are eleven working days in august - after utilizing 4 days annual leave, there are still 7 more working days. - have checked with the HR, and it was allowed provided if the head of department 'okayed' the application.
My questions are: -Can an employee take unpaid for the remainder 7 days? - Does the HOD has any right to hold back the employee?
There is no question of taking no pay leave during notice period. . From 1/8 to 15/8 there are 15 days. If they allow you to take the 4 days annual leave, you may go on 12/8. If they don't allow you to take the 4 days leave, you will work up to 15/8 and they will have to pay you for the 4 days annual leave.
Taking no pay leave is like giving short notice. Looking at it in another way, after giving 3 months notice, can you ask for 3 months no pay leave and go off? A better way is to ask your head of department whether he will let you go at the end of July. You ask for a favour from him.
An employee is earning RM1100 per month. Have taken 2 days unpaid leave in May 08. What is the day basis to be applied 26 days or actual working days 22 (including holiday) or shall we follow the calender day.
