            Annual leave is the holiday with salary.  During Annual leave, the employee shall be paid just the same as normal working days.

  • Which kind of employee could ask for paid annual leave?

The employee who has been working for a consecutive period of more than one year shall be entitled to paid annual leave.  This is a fundamental requirement for annual leave.

It’s no doubt that working with one employer for  more than one consecutive year could meet the requirement of annual leave. Furthermore, it’s also acceptable the employee works with more than one employers for more than one consecutive year, if there is no time gap among different employers.
