Re: Annual Leave taken after serving the notice of resignation
Need you advise for the following matter:
I hve tender my resignation on 8th April 2010 and it serve for 2 months. My last day will be on 8th June 2010 with entitlement of 14 days of earned leaves during my working period.
Last year, i have bought 2 flights ticket with different date as i planned to go on vacations. This was planned before i've decided to resigned. i already bougtht the ticket flights and the date of my flight is on 30th April & 14th May 2010 and recently i've submit an application for annual leave for the abovedate mentioned.
Unfortunately, my head of department don't want to approve my leave although the leave has been releaved by my colleague and verified by the HR department. Although i've explained that i already planned for long time ago..he won't listen to me.. he dont' care. that what he said. His point is that "why need to ask for 2 separate days of leave when applicant is serving notice of termination of employment? isn't it feasible to take "leave" when you are not working?" This statement is what he wrote on my applicatiojn leave.
FYI, the procedure for taking the annual leave is that the application should be relief by my colleagues from same team and verified by the HR department and approved by Head of Department.
The vacation is just round the corner. What should i do now? i seek your advice on this matter.
