Under the Employment Act, his entitlement is only 14 days. Sick leave cannot be prorated.

MC days

Just want to confirm with you that the sick leave can't prorate then how we calculate or sure that an employee is completed service of < 2 or > 2 years.
I mean is I joined on 01.06.2010, and the company procedure is cut off at 31.12.2010. every new year will have new sick leave claim. At that time I just work for half 7 months only. My query is

1. When year 2012, base on my joining date till 01.01.2012, I just service for 1 year + 7 months, will my sick leave for year 2012 is entitle for 14 days or 18 days?? I'll completed my 2 years service at 01.06.2011 and 2 years++ if till year end of 31.12.2012.

Thank you.

Sick leave is based on calendar year. As such, in 2010, you will get 14 days, 2011, you also get 14 days. By year 2012, I think you should get 18 days. Some may want to split hair by saying for Jan to May 2012, you get (14/12) x 5 and from June to Dec, you get (18/12) x 7 or about 16.5 days.
