Employees sometimes, when in need of cash, want to sell their leave to raise the cash. I read somewhere that it is prohibited by law, in the interest of the employee, who must be able to take leave and rest during the year.
I now refused to sell leave to a lady and used that as a reason. She subsequently went to the dept and queried my reason. She was told that it is not true and that it is up to the employer whether he wants to sell or not. I am still opting not to sell, for reasons we can discuss later if need be. I did sell leave in the past, but made sure that the employee is left with minimum two weeks of leave.
Can someone clarify what the law says on the subject?
