Today, I have a question popping in my head... Annual Leave..
1) What is your Company annual leave allocation? I was once worked in a Company that gives me 16 days for a start, and once only 8 days... see the difference? LOL
2) How many days in advance do you apply your leave? a week? 3 days? or 24 hours?
Why I suddenly pop this question? I don't know.. I just look at my recent payslip and feel the pathetic number of leaves I have to use... sad.. sad.. most of my leaves were used to care for the sick Princess, and some to cater for the festive and holiday season.. I am hoping to see the accumulated leaves go beyond 10 days and I can go long holiday!!
Another 'leave' which I recently 'expose' to is call the "Emergency Leave" which forms part of the Annual Leave. Guess this leave was introduced to cater for the 'emergency' however can one exploit this kind of leave? Can someone who fear that their 'plan' leave may not be approved, and decided to jump the gun and take 'emergency' instead? What is the implication of the emergency leave should it is not approved? It keep me wonder... What is the timeline should one leave be called 'emergency'?
I guess when I start to age, and getting more 'personal' stuff to do, annual leave seems to be an important factor of consideration for jobs. I don't mind being paid lower for additional days of leave provided. I do missed those days when I got 21 days annual leave to spend (however at that time, I got no one to spend it with). How ironical!
Since I just started working, guess the annual leave thing will only accumulate to what I want in 5 years time which includes I do not take any 'emergency leave' and keep those limited days for future use. In addition, we shall also have the provision by the Company for me to carry forward my leaves! hehehe...
