I know this sounds bad or inhumane but it is something that some people are cashing on.
I know there are business opportunities such as selling hygiene products and retailers are also cashing in. But are there investment opportunities that one can take advantage of?
The maximum days that an employee can accrue is 15 days in an annual leave cycle, yet the company can at most shutdown for 18 days. So it's not possible to accumulate 18 days in the annual leave period, unless they have a more favourable agreement.
“Some businesses also implement an annual shutdown, which sees the company closing (typically between Christmas and New Year) completely so that no one is able to work. Consequently, staff are forced to take leave during this time.”
In such an instance, the employer is entitled to...
The company cannot dictate how many annual leave days you can take when you want to take annual leave unless if it is due to operational reasons, but the operational reason issue must not be a frequent excuse - must happen only once or twice.
But why wouldn't you want to take more leave days...
