Re: Help. Manager refused to approve my annual leave when I tender my resignation

I resigned 1 July 2009 (1 month noticed according to the company's policy)
According to HR system, I have 5.84 days of Annual Leave plus 6 days of Unrecorded Leave.
My boss said he will approve my 6 days Unrecorded Leave but will Not approved my 5.84 days of Annual Leave because he wanted me to stay that few days to guide the new person. He wanted to offself the Annual Leave with cash payment which I disagreed to.
I've told him I'm entitled to my Annual Leave but he refused to approve my Annual Leave, and without my agreement he wrote to HR asking them to pay me the cash. The HR here seems to side his decision as well. They said it is according to the company's policy.
Please tell me if I can get help from Labor Law to take my Annual Leave that I've earned. Do they have the rights to offset my leave with cash payment without my agreement?

Since your service is required, they can refuse to approve your leave and choose to pay you. Refer the Labour Office if necessary.
