    Leave during notice period

    Hi forum experts

    I am currently 2 days into serving my notice period. About a month ago I sent my manager my leave plan for the rest of the year as he requested in order to do proper planning. A week ago I formally applied for annual leave and thereafter I would be returning for a week to serve out the remaining notice period. When I submitted my resignation letter he mentioned that he needs to speak to HR about my leave, but would approve my leave in any case. A few days later and my leave has still not yet been approved. Where does that leave me? Could I be regarded as having absconded if I go on leave or what legal grounds would I have to counter that argument?

    If they don't approve the leave, they're just going to have to pay it out on termination anyway.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Understood, but I really couldn't care about the money. I need the leave as I am burnt out.
