Re: Annual Leave Calculation

I have a scenario here:
Joint date : 8/2006
So, for year 2006, the staff is not allowed to take annual leave.

In year 2007, the annual leave entitlement is the pro-rata calculation for period from 8/2006 to 12/2006. So, it's 2 1/2 days.

In year 2008, the annual leave entitlement for the service rendered from 1/1/2007 to 31/12/2007, which is 8 days.

In year 2009, the annual leave entitlement for the service rendered from 1/1/2008 to 31/12/2008, which is 12 days.

The staff resigns as at 15/10/2009. So, the annual leave entitlement for the service rendered from 1/1/2009 to 15/10/2009 is 10 1/2 days.

Is it correct to calculate in this manner ?
Thank you.

Yes, any leave balance of the 12 days earned in period 1/1/08 to 31/12/08 plus 10 1/2 days.

So, the year of service must be 12 months continuous service in a year with the same employer?

Why should there be such a doubt?

I just newly joined this company. My understanding of the calculation is on the first year when they joined, if no full 12 months service in that year, then we count pro-rata. Then the next year, if got full 12 months, we will count it 8 days. And for the following year, if got full 12 months continous service again, annual leave is 12 days.

But the admin staff just argued with me that it should be calculated from the joint date, so if the person joined at 1/2/2009, then 31/1/2010 will considered as full 1 year service, then continue 1/2/2010 till 31/1/2011 will consider 2nd year of service. So, they calculate the annual leave entitlement for year 2011 will be 1/1/2010 to 31/1/2010, which is pro-rata of 8 days entitlement, so is 0.5 days plus from 1/2/2010 to 31/12/2010, which is 11 days. the annual leave entitlement for that year is 11.5 days.

I just found that it's pretty confusing, error found and workload also to maintain such a calculation since the workers is not just 10 or 20 ppl but it's more than 100 ppl. I don't think that labour law has insisted us on applying the method that they apply. Am i right?

Thank you.

Well, the Labour Department will be the place to get the dispute settled then.

It's time to leave such a company. There are so many companies which give a minimum of 14 days for a start and 18 days for a start for Executives and above.

The Malaysian Labour Law has not been revised since time in memorial. It's time that employers treat their staff fairly or else they risk to do the work themselves. Don't expect the Gen Ys to work like a cow for them.

Joining Date: 2016-02-27
Less than 2 years 12 working days Which Date is the starting date of Employee A has 12 working days?

Which Date is the starting date of Employee B has 12 working days?

2 years or more but less than 5 years 16 working days Which Date is the starting date of Employee A has 16 working days?
Which Date is the starting date of Employee B has 16 working days?

5 years and more 18 working days Which Date is the starting date of Employee A has 18 working days?
Which Date is the starting date of Employee B has 18 working days?

And also please there is any formula for calculate the Annual Leave.
