Mr Siew. Thank you very much.
1 month notice means 30 days including all Saturday, Sunday even Public Holidays. So when the staff resigned and choose to early leave then her leave will go to offset irrespectively of the type of day.
Currently, we are practise to allow the staff to apply leave ( AL or unpaid leave ). For example: she want to early leave for 5 days, she may apply unpaid or use her AL balance to replace 9/5, 8/5, 7/5, 4/5, 3/5 ( Saturday and Sunday excluded ), and she just need to work till 2/5, company pay till 9/5. ( if she apply unpaid leave, company pay till 9/5 but deduct from her unpaid leave, same like we pay her up to 2/5 but include Saturday and Sunday pay also lah ) ( if she apply AL balance then she also need to work till 2/5, and company pay till 9/5 ) For this case, I can't see how the staff pay wages to employer as indemnity. Is my calculation wrong? Please help to advise, if wrong.
From your explanation, I define as boss allowed to offset by AL, I need to pay her till 4/5 only ( I can see the 5 days of AL offset from the short notice include offset for Saturday & Sunday, the staff did pay as indemnity to employer, becaused when she use AL to offset, she may early leave but no $$ for her AL balance ). If boss not allowed, she need to work according to her resigned notice, and I will pay her up to 9/5 + 5 AL
Sorry, due to some of my staff really calculative, I can't calculate wrong, and they like to query me on the calculation method, I have to clear about it. Thank you very much !!!!!!!!
