Dear Sir / Madam,

I am currently working in an International Insurance company. I am currently working for 13 hours. I have been here almost 2 years. I have recently tendered my resignation.

I am facing a problem with my Annual Leave entitlement, as per my offer letter and employee handbook that has been provided to me by the Human Resource Department, it is stated that my annual leave entitlement is 16 days.

However upon my request to leave early by utilizing my remaining annual leave which I am yet to use for this year, I have been told that my total annual leave is to be divided by 1.25, which means it is 16 / 1.25, this is because I am working 13 hours shift.

This clause was not shared to me up till this point, it is not stated anywhere in my offer letter and employee handbook. I have been demanding for a written official communication on this, however till date the Human Resource department are not able to furnish it to me. They have only been stressing on the 1.25 calculation via emails when I requested for the written communication. I have gone through each word in my offer letter and employee handbook. I feel cheated as the benefit that was offered to me is not accurate.

Please advise how could I go about to seek for help in this matter. I do not want to let it go because it is supposed to be my benefit.

Hi there

If your really sure there is nothing in the letter of offer which suggest that the annual leave of 16 days must be divided to 1.25 (I am not sure how they worked out 1.25 to 13 hours shift), then tender your resignation minus 16 days. If they talk about this 1.25 thing, stand your ground and ask them to point out where in your letter of offer does it state about the 1.25 thing.
