Re: UPL

hi sir,
Section 60D (2) applied if someone is ABSENT without reason. For my case, my staff have filled in the leave application form, but since they have used up their annual leave, so they have no choice but to apply for unpaid leave. We work 5.5 days per week. Saturday work 1/2 day n rest on Sunday. If someone who has used up his annual leave wish to apply for unpaid from Friday to Tuesday, n let say Monday is PH...how many days shd i deduct from his salary? 5 days ?

No-pay leave is not a right and taking of no-pay leave should be strongly discouraged. If one applied for a certain period of no-pay leave and management approved it, don't turn around to say there is rest day, holidays in the period which should be paid. To avoid the problem, he could have specified or chosen the working days for no-pay leave and don't go and apply for no-pay leave on rest days or PHs. If the management is willing to consider such application, no problem.

i have called to Labour Office and the officer said employer shd pay for the rest day and PH if they squeeze in between unpaid leaves. This makes me very confusing. Im not from HR line but have taken the job over few years back. so my staff somehow dun really trust me although i have proven to them i am able to handle the job even better thn previous HR Exec. They always call to Labour Office for confirmation whenever what i've done is different from previous HR Exec. Please advise. Thanks.

In that case, you will have to follow the official views of the Labour Office. However, my advice is: don't be too liberal in granting no pay leave. Workers can take advantage if you are too accommodating.

Even the officer themselves cannot give me a final answer. I called few times to the sama branch, diffrent officer gave me different answer! btw, my boss asked me to go on with no pay on the rest day and PH if one whish to appy UPL. Shd i just follow my boss?

That's what I would do, like your boss. Make it clear to those who apply for no pay leave that the whole period including rest days or public holidays in between would be no pay. If don't agree, don't approve their application.
