Can Employee Takes Sick Leave During Notice Period?

Can the Employee Takes Medical Leave during Notice Period? Can the employer requests the employee to extend his/her notice period?

If the employee was on sick leave (whether paid or unpaid) during the notice period, the sick leave taken should be treated as part of the notice period. Such leave shall be deducted from his/her medical leave entitlement (14 days MC and 60 days Hospitalization), unpaid sick leave will be used if all medical leave has been consumed.

The employer cannot claim for any short notice from the employee, which mean employer cannot ask the employee to extend his notice period based on the number of medical leave taken.
