Dear all,

Please suggest me that in case an employee resigns and the resignation period being one month and the employee has also applied for his privilege/ earned leaves for a week or two (during his notice period as well) and still has left with leaves in his leave bank.

Kindly guide me whether we shall include or exclude leave period from his notice period and take the effect date of the notice period after his leaves are over (as there is no mentioning in the leave policy that the leaves if granted during the resignation period shall be included/ excluded in the resignation period).

Actually it depends. Depends on your company's standard policy that you currently have. If you don't have any than follow the similar industry trend.

In our company the personnel will allow to take his unused leave but condition is also there. And the rule is the resigned personnel should completed all the work that assigned him/her earlier.

In our company, and also in the one i was working previously, your leaves would lapse or rather freezed upon the submission of resignation letter.

However, if an employee takes leave i.e unpaid/unapproved during this period he has to return atleast 4 working days prior to his last working day in the organisation. In other words, an employee cannot go on leave and subsequently quit.

Hope this was of some use to you.
