Re: Resignation & Annual Leave

I just tendered my resignation with 1 month notice since I am not yet a confirmed staff. I have been with this company for over 8 months now and have accumulated 7 days of AL calculated proratedly. I plan to clear my 7 days leave before my resignation date but my superior does not approve my 7 days leave saying that the annual leave is a "privilege" and not a "right" of an employee. Is this lawful? FYI, my salary is above RM1500 but below RM5000.

Try to make a claim for it at the Labour Department.

Thanks KL Siew for the response.

In my case, my superior says he wont approve my 7 days leave because "resignation" is not a valid reason to go on leave, and that as long as I am still a staff, the priority of the company has to come first.

What are my chances with the Labour Dept?
What action will the Labour Dept take when I file such claim?

Then your employer should pay you if they couldn't afford to let you go on leave. Never mind, no harm consulting the Labour Department.

The problem is my employer won't pay for my entitled AL and won't let me go on leave. On this matter, am I protected by any labour law? If I am not protected by any law, what can the Labour Dept do, even if I make a claim?

Let your superior know that you are going to approach the Labour Department to find out about what he said was true and you better do that.
