Thanks for trying Mr Siew
I'm fully aware that when I'm in my 7th year I can take 16 day leave.
What I don't understand is -- take only 12 days whereas You're entitled to 16 days for the 6th year.
My contract further says " Upon confirmation, you are entitled to 8 days of annual leave for 12 months of continuous service- (for 2 years and below ) in the company. Subsequently will be 12 days ( 2 years to 5 years)
As such , I wasn't able to take any leave for the first 12 months of service. For the 2nd year service , I only took 8 days leave.
3rd year - 12 days, 4th year- 12 days , 5th year - also 12 days leave. From this senario, can't I take 16 days for the 6th year ?
To answer your question; if I get 16 days and I only take 12 days , then the 4 days is forfeited by midnight 24 August 2009 ; that's the urgency .
Thanks again, and looking forward to hearing your explanation
