Re: Sick Leave on Annual Leave
I was on Annual Leave in September recently but I was sick and obtained Medical Leave from the panel clinic on that day.
Therefore, I have applied for AL cancellation and apply for Medical Leave on that day.
However, my HOD still did not approve the AL cancellation so I cannot apply for the Medical Leave via the system due to the overlapping dates.
My salary is above RM2,500
My question is:
1) Am I entiled for the sick leave as states in the below clause of Employment Act 1955:
1B) Where an employee who is on paid annual leave becomes entitled to sick leave or maternity leave while on such annual leave, the employee shall be granted the sick leave or the maternity leave, as the case may be, and the annual leave shall be deemed to have not been taken in respect of the days for which sick leave or maternity leave is so granted.
